Description

Peacocks are ubiquitous in art throughout Eastern and Western culture. Originating from the Indian subcontinent the peacock  was introduced to European Imperial and Royal courts possibly as early as the reign of Alexander the Great. The ancient belief that the flesh of the peacock did not putrefy has lent it to signify immortality. In late Roman-Christian art the image was a symbol of resurrection. In addition, the eyes in the peacock’s tail represents the all-seeing eye of God.

St Augustine; (De Civitate Dei, 21.4): ‘For who but God the Creator of all things has given to the flesh of the peacock its antiseptic property?’

This piece has been embroidered using only the finest, vegetable dyed silk.
