Every detail hand-cut from vintage papers.
Rendered in paper and paint for a repeat original buyer in Houston, this oversized (6.5' wide!) peacock was a first for Dolan in this subject matter. Each individual feather and minute detail, down to the peacock's vibrant indigo body, was hand-cut from vintage papers and applied to a wooden background. This large-scale collage mirrors the sophisticated furnishings in the client’s dining room and provides a colorful anchoring point in modern, neutral interior.
