"Peacock symbolises our colourful and energetic yet calm and serene life. The changing red green yellow gradient of its feathers in the painting represents our life transformations in various stages - youth, adulthood and senile. The blue peacock body represents how we may change on the surface level, but from the core, we are what we are, and some values, ideas and beliefs always stay, unaffected by age. Painted on an 18\"×24\" canvas, this painting uses every colour in the rainbow, and took two days to complete. Certain strands of the feathers are highlighted with varnish to give it a realistic effect."
