Peacock set

The peacock is one of the most popular animal ornaments in Hungarian ornamentation, and is often used as a bird of love.

In the songs of prisoners, the peacock is the hope of salvation, of eternal life. The peacock representing light is the liberation and light for the prisoner of the dark jail; it is the embodiment of the light and the Sun compared against the black cloth.

In Christian symbolism, the peacock is a symbol of immortality. St. Augustine mentions the legend that the peacock loses its feathers every winter and finds them again in the spring: similarly, the human body discards the feathers of mortality and picks up its immortality.

The silver jewelry was made with goldsmith-enamel techniques, decorated with a turquoise, translucent jewelry enamel.

The full shape of the peacock appears on the pendant and earrings.
