Peafowl (2017)

Peafowl are the national bird of India. They are known for their bright colors and dramatic plumage. They are hunted for their feathers, meat and fat. This image was created not only to promote awareness of Peafowl hunting, but also to allow me to study the structure and colors of the feathers. From start to finish, this project took over 7 months to complete and measures slightly over 3ft x 3ft. It was created using a fiber art technique called Needle Felting. It is done by taking wool roving and stabbing the wool into a base fabric with a special barbed needle. Along with the wool used to create most needle felted work, this one also contained silk and bamboo fibers.
