This wood carving is an excellent representation of a folk art peacock. The bird features great spread wings and tail, each meticulously carved, burn decorated and joined to the hand carved body. The bird also has burned decoration on the body to look like feathers, the beak is painted a deep red. The nails that hold the body sections together all are cut nails and the wood is cedar and pine. The carving likely has origins in the area from Pennsylvania through the north eastern seaboard.
