Birds of a Feather

As birds go, the peacock is one sexy beast, and they know it... why else would they strut around all fanned out like that. We certainly agree and that's why it's not surprising that they constantly inspire designers and artists. Here are a few examples of works inspired by, or created with, the oh-so-lovely peacock and their feathers...
