Peacock Weathervane – Standing

Peacock Weather Vane Standing (Pavo cristatus)


The copper Standing Peacock Weather Vane shown here was made with optional gold leaf on the arrow tip, as well as on its comb, beak, legs and around each glass jewel in its tail. Because we make each weather vane to order you can choose the colors of the glass jewels in the tail of your peacock. As the weathervane turns, sunlight will at times shine through the jeweled glass, drawing dramatic attention to the entire sculpture piece. On some of our Peacock weather vanes customers have also added optional palladium leaf accents to further enhance its showy personality.

Our peacock weathervane has been a hit with a number of customers around the country, including peacock breeders and several Bed and Breakfast Inns. But among our most memorable peacock enthusiasts was a successful Silicon Valley executive who moved here from India. While he enjoyed the high tech environment of California, he also loved his homeland and missed being able to look outside and see one of these splendid birds strolling by. The garden sculpture piece you see below was the result of this longing, and even had the advantage of not disturbing his neighbors with its loud and distinctive call.

One of our customers, a well-known peacock breeder in Louisiana, sent us the following note:

“Dear All,

The weathervane is perfect in every way! We are so grateful for your hard work. Thanks a million!”

Peafowl consist of three Asiatic species of flying bird in the genus Pavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae. They are best known for the male’s extravagant eye-spotted tail, which it displays as part of courtship. The male is called a peacock, the female a peahen, and the offspring peachicks. The adult female peafowl is grey and/or brown. Peachicks can be between yellow and a tawny color with darker brown patches.
