I love symbolism. I often include it in my paintings. In this painting you will find four symbols of eternal life. Take a moment to guess what they are.........Give up? Okay, the peacock (which is a hat) is the first one. Surprised? I was, too. The circles, the spirals and the primitive looking palm leaf (by the model's arm) are the others. This painting was inspired by ancient Egyptian art. Although it doesn't show up in the photo, I added metallic gold pen to parts of the peacock, to one of the circles and to the model's cheek.

That's cool about the peacock. I didn't know that and I love all the symbolism that you use. Great job! It's a beautiful painting!
