Description

Sculpture of three peacocks.

Signature

Annotation

Gift from the town of Kunming, the twin city of Zürich in China. The peacock is a symbol of Yunnan Province, of which Kunming is the capital. The elegantly flowing contours exude harmony and intimacy. The sculpture awakes the intimate human desire for family, love and happiness and embodies the people's desire for peace and harmonious development.
