A fantastic Antique Peacock Taxidermy mount on a wood pedestal. The male peacock is a bird known for it’s brightly coloured fanned tail feathers which are iridescent blue/green in colour.
These tail feathers, or coverts, spread out in a distinctive train that is more than 60 percent of the bird’s total body length and boast colorful “eye” markings of blue, gold, red, and other hues. The large train is used in mating rituals and courtship displays. It can be arched into a magnificent fan that reaches across the bird’s back and touches the ground on either side. Females are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.
This beautiful bird is mounted on a black wood pedestal so that the tail feathers flow gracefully to the floor.
