  2. Next time I see a real peacock I will take a closer look to spot the simularities...

  3. It's in the eye pattern inscribed in the crescent design above her head - the same pattern in a peacock feather.

  4. 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).

  5. 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.

  7. 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:
