Description The white Peacock is not a different species of peacock. Due to a genetic variation, it is born all white. White peacocks are not albino; albinos lack all color and have pink eyes. White peafowls have blue eyes and colored skin. The national bird of India is the Indian Peafowl commonly known as a Peacock. The peacock is native to India and further east, but the bird has a long history in the Middle East, perhaps originally brought by early Indian traders to ancient Babylon. After Alexander the Greats conquest, the Greeks learned of the peacock. They quickly added the bird to their most revered deities.There are many mixed tales told about peacocks in popular Islam. According to one tale, God created a peacock which sat on a tree and prayed for 70,000 years using prayer beads. Then God put a mirror in front of the peacock. The bird was so pleased at its own beauty that it prostrated itself to God five times. Hence, the tradition of five prayers a day arose among the Muslims. White Peacock, is a hand-painted digital image created in Spadecallers Florida studio.
I.M. Spadecaller, Clearwater Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement Welcome to Spadecaller's Galleries.
About the Artist: Spadecaller (Matt Schwartz) is the pseudonym he uses for his visual art, writing, poetry, and video creations; initially, the name came about by his direct approach on subjects that focus on humanitarian issues that impact our world today. He's known to call a spade a spade.
In the late 1950’s, Spadecaller’s formal training in traditional oil painting techniques commenced. He was eight years old, when he started private painting lessons. Through considerable personal sacrifice, his mother, who has since passed away, nurtured his artistic talents and provided him with many of the tools and circumstances to launch his creative journey. Memories of art exhibitions in New York City that his mother introduced him to continue to motivate his quest for excellence. Spadecaller attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City (1970-71), and during the 70's up until the late 80's, he exhibited acrylic and oils in Montreal and New York. As a realist painter, he strives to capture the beauty of nature and the soul of humankind. Due to the onset of chronic illness in the late nineties and with the advent of image editing software, he turned to creating digital hand painted images, mixed media and photographic art - fusing these into an art form worthy of the same gratification that he had once found in oils.
