DANCING WITH PEACOCKS / SERGEY POLUNIN (2017)
Allegory of integrity and rejuvenation.
A peacock symbolises beauty, freedom, nobility, integrity, vision, refinement, protection, self-expression, and watchfulness.
Peacock also represents resurrection, renewal and immortality within the spiritual teachings of Christianity.
In Buddhist iconography, peacocks are symbols of wisdom.
A peacock feather stands for the all seeing eye, symbolising immortality and a pure soul forever free of corruption.
Seeing a peacock is a reminder for you to acknowledge your dreams, aspirations...
Peacock is a gorgeous messenger of dreaming all that you can be with no limits... embracing infinite possibility, believing that anything you dream is possible, that all things come in perfect timing, just trust in the process and let the Universe to do it's magic working on your behalf.
Born in 1943 in Alma-Ata, USSR. Graduated from Odessa College of Arts "Grekovka". Started to exhibit while studying at the college. It was followed by numerous local, nationwide, All-Soviet Union and international exhibitions. Member of the Union of Artists of the USSR since 1986. Living and working in the UK since 1998. Preferred media - oil on canvas. Preferred genre - figurative art. It demands knowledge of the whole spectre of genres - portraits, landscapes, still-life, - only then your fantasy is not restricted by any inner barriers. I worked in graphics, ceramics, murals and as a theatrical designer. My paintings are in the private collections in dozens of countries of the World, from Japan and Australia to Europe and both coasts of the USA, including two portraits at the collection of the Royal Geographical Society, London.
