The Cardinal detail- The Peacock
It's a real bird
12" x 84"
The peacock in this word symbolises the Flock as well as spiritual purity. The Greeks saw the peacock to represent immortality as it replaces its beautiful feathers annually and therefore seems to never age. The collar around the birds neck is no longer connected to the Cardinal or his representation of the church. Neither the bird or the cardinal seems to be very concerned.
