For Voisin, a man with rational design principles, it wouldn’t make sense to put a life-size bird on a radiator cap. This, however, was inevitable. Car mascots were all the rage at the time, and car owners would put all sorts of animals, saints and mythological figurines on their car. So, in order to prevent worse, Voisin saw no other way than to make his own mascot. His feelings for this piece of ornament are well reflected in the name he gave her: nothing nearly as poetic as the ‘Spirit of Ecstasy”. No it was “La Cocotte”. French for “chicken” or (more commonly in the period) “prostitute”. This Art Deco harlot stood about 23 cm high (although they varied somewhat in size) on the Voisin and she was made of a few pieces of scrap aluminium, a couple of rivets and that was that. Now the Cocotte alone sells for 2800 USD to collectors. (http://www.arteauto.com/browseproducts/automobiles-voisin-mascot.html) The envy of her colleagues.
