Tail feathers raised, this Indian peacock is strutting his stuff. On display is its iridescent blue and green metallic colored plumage. Throughout its tail-feathers, 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 will fit perfectly within any decor style and add the finishing touch to its surroundings.
The basic frame of the is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. 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 come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted.
