Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Striking oil painting of a peacock.
"The fearful voice of the peacock is like the voice of the preacher who warns sinners of their end in hell" Source Medieval Bestiary
It was thought the peacock would cry whenever he caught a glimpse of his ugly feet, they blemished his otherwise beautiful image. In the same way the preacher urged that people also lament and hate their own spiritual imperfections.
