Peacock box

Hurray! I have finally finished my preview piece for the May Days Arts Trail this year 🙂 The theme for our preview piece at the gallery space I share (thanks Carol Dilley) is peacock. It’s taken some time to pull all the parts together for this little wall box, but hopefully it was worth the wait!

The two door panels are painted with peacock feathers in acrylic over a broken paint background, and have a set of bronze wire hooks inside for jewellery or keys. The centre panel inside is a pyrographed tree of life, embellished with glass beads which mimic the peacock colours. The inside of the boxes are lined with copper leaf. The paintwork is lacquered for protection as the piece is going to be in a library for a month or so. There are a pair of hanging loops on the back so that it can be wall mounted. Size: 205mm x 205mm x 45mm deep
