The peacock is the central element of this lamp. Good luck, harmony, serenity, peace of mind, relaxation and protection, are the attributes associated with this majestic bird. Particularly remarkable is the treatment of the plumage, with the ornamental work and careful selection of the color range enhancing the beauty of the piece. In India peacocks are believed to have one thousand eyes in their feathers.
The lampshade is made in matte white porcelain. When lit, the transparent quality of the porcelain allows light to even further highlight the floral motifs of the engravings.
In Hinduism, Sarasvati, the goddess of knowledge and learning, rides on a peacock. Sometimes, it is also a mount for Lakshmi or Brahma. When mounted by Kama, the god of love, it symbolizes desire, and when the god Indra transforms himself into an animal, it adopts the shape of the peacock.
