The blue peacock, one of the oldest ornamental birds, looks unique, like he just strutted out of paradise. In ancient Greece, the peacock was the animal symbol of the goddess Hera. According to Greek mythology, she placed the eye of the peacock on its feathers in order to symbolise the omniscience and wisdom of the gods.
The Nymphenburg Peacock rightly numbers among the most famous works of Theodor Kärner, who designed it in 1906 when he was only 21 years old. Theodor Kärner understood like no one else how to develop naturalism from the form. In fact, he could draw it out in such a great degree that he could lend the paradisiacal bird its natural, gracious charm in white biscuit porcelain.
