About the Book
'An Ostentation Of Peacocks' teaches base shape templates then extends them into fully embellished design examples. The book features an short introduction about Peacock Symbolism. The book is mostly made up of eclectic designs that are embellished with ornate pattern fills and are influenced by Indian Bridal Henna, Eastern Textiles, Art Nouveau and Symbolism. You are free to copy these designs outright in your personal arts practice, though this book is designed to be non-prescriptive and I encourage you to come up with your own designs and adaptations. Though designed with HENNA artists in mind - motif could easily be transferred to other ORNAMENTAL ART PRACTICES SUCH AS TEXTILE ART, CERAMICS, GOLD & SILVERSMITHING, PYROGRAPHY and the like... Demystifies body art design and teaches you to master designs stemming from base motifs.
