The bird of Hope is the peacock. This offers the hope of immortality, chosen because the poetic teachers who fixed our symbols saw that those wonderful blue eyes surrounded by rays shining with the colour of light, were cast every year and renewed again and again. Possibly too because they saw the blind blue eye looked ever upwards to the heavens whilst it trailed along the earth.
This design is based on the central panel of a Roman mosaic discovered at St. Nicholas Street, Leicester in 1898.
This wall decoration would make a thoughtful gift for bird lovers.
Fixing Points: the holes in the corners of the tile
Dimensions: 10cm x 10cm
