Artist's description:

The symbolic meaning of the peacock varies from culture to culture. In some cultures the peacock is a symbol of pride or vanity, due to the way the bird struts and shows off its plumage. In Babylonia and Persia the bird is seen as a guardian to royalty, and is often seen in engravings upon the thrones of royalty. In Christian iconography it is depicted next to the Tree of Life, and is associated with immortality.

"The Indian Peacock" is an original watercolor, painted using transparent watercolors (professional watercolor paints by Schmincke, and Winsor & Newton), plus watercolor pencils for small details. It is painted on high quality Hahnemühle 425 gms (g/m2) watercolor paper.
