This is my translation of Tammera’s:


VANITY
by Tammera

I was drawn & inspired to this by two things:

First & foremost for the symbolic meaning of peacocks, which are many and very desirable (and noble if I might add). This gracoius bird sysmbolizes:

*Intergrity
*Glory
*Vision
*Royalty
*Spirituality
*Awakening
*Immortality
*Refinement
*Incorruptibility

The above list just names a few (just a tip of the iceberg). It is also the subject of a great many mythological stories spanning through time, worlds, religions, and cultures. So aside from being one of (if not the) most beautiful bird in the world, it plays a greater role in human culture.

As a result, while researching this great creature and simultaneously looking at Tammera’s work, I could see a lone figure like the personification of the human race, ‘embracing’ this great bird not only for it’s beauty but (and more especially) to absorb these symbolic qualities.
