A Peacock Tale

It is a bit of a play on words. "A Peacock Tale".

The story of the beautiful peacock body colours is presented here and surpassed by the majesty of the tail feathers. Using recycled bottle tops to carry the images of the tail feathers, portrays the 'everyday' attitude the peacock seems to have to his own beauty. I have just added this one to the Etsy shop.

The recycled canvas wedges convey my peacock photos taken at the Dunsborough animal farm. They are presented on a piece of Moranti wood that has been lightly coated with redgum sap to give it a gentle gloss. The beads are made from rolled up copies of the photographs of the tail interspersed with vintage faux pearls (thanks Grandma Darnell) and turquoise beads.
