I have a peacock-heavy piece of art out next month so with that grasping for spurious relevance here’s a few more peacock discoveries.

Antoine Helbert‘s untitled peacock man is one of a number of striking portraits turning humans into birds. Via Chateau Thombeau.

    Peculiarly, I had a movie recommendation generated for me that was titled Peacock I hadn’t heard of before, starring Cillian Murphy.
