They say birds of a feather flock together. Perhaps, that's why our Set of Two Peacock Canvas Wall Décor look so natural, side by side. Resembling antique bird prints, the images of these majestic birds will grace and beautify your home wherever you hang them.
Illustrated in the style of antique, hand-colored prints found in cherished natural history and ornithology guides during the 18th and 19th centuries, the artist's hand has captured the color, form and resplendent allure of the peacock. Each print smaller studies of the head and tail feather as well as inscriptions describing the bird – all commonly seen in bird and natural history guides of yesteryear.
The right facing peacock "Paon domestique (Pavo eristatus)" sets on a branch and shows off a cascade of jewel-toned blue and green feathers. The left facing bird "Peacock (Indian)" stands on a plinth and urn, displaying multicolored feathers of green, blue, golden yellow and rust. Behind the birds, white antique and Jacobean patterns are printed over linen-colored backgrounds.
Many believe the distinctive peacock pose, with bird glancing backwards toward a majestic tail, represents a symbol for renewal. This is said to be because their gorgeous feathers are shed and re-grown each year. Whether the pose is symbolic of pride and renewal, or merely an artist's convention for displaying the male peafowl's majestic beauty, the look is undeniably graceful and elegant. The rich colors and feather patterning, along with the proud peacock pose, is skillfully captured in each of our prints.
Together, our bird art pair is perfectly sized to hang over a mantle, couch or bed. They could flank a window, piece of furniture or hang over matching end tables. Wherever you decide to hang them, these proud peacock prints will spread beauty and add drama to your home décor. Printed on canvas. Indoor use only.
