Byzantine Style Peacock Panel

Byzantine style panel of a peacock eating grapes, an image rich in meaning for the Orthodox Church. This is a recurring theme for Dimitrios. The work is in basswood, as are many of his formal liturgical pieces. This piece is religious in form, and more formal than a similar peacock panel, yet the artist has still permitted himself expression and interpretation. This piece is on loan for study. It is not sufficiently formal for the liturgical environment. Dimensioned about 14” x 22”.
