Love the creativity of the peacock feather motif.
Next time I see a real peacock I will take a closer look to spot the simularities...
It's in the eye pattern inscribed in the crescent design above her head - the same pattern in a peacock feather.
Mucha must have loved peacocks! Or he lived nearby a peacock farm. Or it's an art-nouveau style thing. Or maybe it's a secret code (like the freemasons).
Rob, just out of curiosity, I checked to see if Mucha was a freemason. I did not know that he was the person responsible for restoring Czech Freemasonry.See also: http://tinyurl.com/muchamasonry
OMG you're right! I really didn't know. Spooky stuff. I think we're onto something here...
I think I'm going to have to start examining your Mucha postings more closely now.There was a second page linked off the first one in case you missed it:http://tinyurl.com/muchamasonry2
I love to read your remarks and suggestions. I don't mind if you comment anonymously, but I severely dislike anonymous comments with an included link (these will be deleted).
