The Peacock Trees



“The king’s ships, manned by Hiram’s sailors, made a round trip to Tarshish every three years, returning with a cargo of gold, silver, and ivory, apes and peacocks.”
2 Chronicles 9

That is an amazing tree. Whoever came up with the idea for this tree did an excellent job. I love the colors and feathers.

What a pretty tree. It's upside down too. How do they get that to stand up? Love those colors

Peacocks are so pretty, but never would have thought of using the feathers in this fashion. Very well done.

Ginny was this one of your trees or somewhere you went? It looks very pretty - I would have never thought about doing that myself. Happy New Year. sandie

Wonder how those apes and peacocks got along! Peacock feathers have such a unique beauty - but it's all a little glitzy for me!

Beautiful colors! We had a guy (a customer) who owned peacocks and he brought us down some feathers. We still display them in our office, they are so pretty.

these are just beautiful. i saw a thing on TV that in the past people used birds and animals and circus themes for their trees, and i remember the circus mask tree at the museum.... also they used natural things, pine cones and berry's and holly and pop corn, stuff they could find without buying it.
