Silk Embroidery Peacocks

People like peacocks because of their richly colored tail feathers. Because of their gorgeous appearance, peacocks have long been famous outside of their native countries of Southern Asia and Malaysia, and was kept for centuries by people first in China and then in Europe and America. In China, the peacock is the totem worshiped by the Dai people. The Dai people created Peacock Dance by imitating the peacock. Peacock feathers are popularly used in unique crafts and decorations. In Suzhou embroidery works, we can see peacock pictures very often. The embroidery artists in Suzhou like making silk peacock embroideries. As some embroidery artists put it, peacocks are a work of art by God. It's more than a work to embroider a peacock on silk satin, but a really happy time that many embroidery artists enjoy. 

In ancient Chinese culture peacocks were sometimes embroidered on hangings belonging to high ranking officials to represent their authority. Peacocks were also ascribed in an ancient book with 9 virtues: "having a tidy face, clear voice, careful walk, appropriate behavior according to place and time, moderation in eating and drinking, knowing how to be content, existing together, not being obscene, and always returning." Peacocks were therefore painted on buildings and other items to honor these much loved virtues.
