Peacock

I have studied the peacock for years and realized that its fanned tail actually detracts from the pure line of its silhouette. I chose, therefore, to show the tail “at rest” and realized the beautiful classic S shape of the form allowed me to study the whole. Using a rich gold patina stippled over the entire composition enabled me to emphasize its stylized geometry and make reference to the Art Deco period. This sculpture is available in two sizes: display and monumental.
