In 1963, the male Indian peafowl which is commonly called Peacock was named the national bird of India and also the state bird of Rajasthan.
This gorgeous and majestic bird Mayura which is Sanskrit for Peacock is a symbol of beauty, joy, grace, and pride. They have been an inspiration to art and artists all over the world, painters create life-like paintings of them, musicians like to make tunes around them, designers make interiors inspired by them, sculptors carve their images on different types of stone and wood.
They have been a part of all forms of art and continue to be so. Auphorie Mayura (limited edition), created by Eugene Au and Emrys Au is inspired by this sacred fowl.
