Tailfeathers raised, this Indian peacock is strutting his stuff. On display is its iridescent blue and green, metallic-colored, plumage. Throughout its tailfeathers, the artists drew in the peacock’s distinctive eyespots, with the eye itself in different colors. The chest of the bird is crafted from capiz shell, carefully painted in the blues and greens this bird is known for. It fits perfectly within any decor style and will add the finishing touch to its surroundings.
The basic frame of this piece is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. The front of the body is adorned with capiz. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz may come through as tans and browns underneath the hand-painted surface.
