Peacock by zsparky Peacock by zsparky
Recent cutout I finished. Simply titled "Peacock," since that's what my boyfriend called it (haha).
15-20 hours sketch and cut. 18 xacto blades. B3 size (~ 14" x 20" or 35.3 x 50 cm) paper.

This is such a beautiful paper art. When I first saw it I thought "what a beautiful eagle" but then I read "Peacock". LOL! I think that whatever type of bird it may be, it is very elegant.

This is really beautiful, except for one thing. Peacocks don't fly.

But other than that it's great.
