Peacocks are very popular in home decor. You’ll find peacock motifs available for just about every room of your house. Even your smart phone can now be clothed with a peacock cover.
What is it about these beautiful birds that have inspired people for centuries? Early Catholics, for instance, sometimes painted pictures of peacocks on the catacombs. You’ll also find images of feathers from this magnificent bird in a number of churches and cathedrals.
