Perfect Pink Peacock

One of my favorite animals from the jungles of India is the peacock. He is the poster child of pheasants, and this one is particularly pretty with it’s pink plumage and… eyelashed rhinestone feathers? Oh brother. Perhaps this was supposed to a turkey, but now it’s pink and a peacock because no turkey ever had a gold beak.

    Such a pretty peacock! Rhinestones glued on ceramics is one of my favorite things ever, especially when accented with gold paint. I agree that the plumage looks very turkey like, which makes it all the better to kitsch with!

    (The AWMOK Jungle Animal Petting Zoo is a scenic attraction whose cages are currently being filled to coincide with the release of the upcoming Pomplamoose with Allee Willis “Jungle Animal” VideoSong and online music game and contest. Jungle tamer, AWMOK creator, curator and charming hostess, Allee Willis, me, will be steadily leading jungle animals to their cages over the next 1-2 months or so as you bring them here until the song is released. If ever there ever was a category that was primed to be kitschified it’s that of “Jungle Animal” as all the stripes, spots and fur have been inspiration for designers since the beginning of time. I thank you all in advance for placing your jungle pets in such an illustrious cage as The Allee Willis Museum of Kitsch. Keep them coming!)

      Rhinestones glue anywhere is really hard to compete with! I think there was a gradient attempted here with two shades of blue and one shade of green rhinestone, but not quite the effect.

    I didn’t realize that when turkeys and turtle doves mated you ended up with pink peacocks! At least, that’s what it looks like happened here…
