Here's one for the Pub Trivia enthusiast; A group of Peafowl is called either a Pride or an Ostentation. Which is it?
Answer - both!
The plumage or 'train' of a Peacock in real life is long. Carving from a block of ice that is just 1m high and 1/2m wide poses problems . As you can see from the above image, we have placed the Peacock on a plinth in order to actually get a realistic train effect. Peacocks love to stand on things - so this is a slice of reality!
In the base or plinth of the Peacock Ice Sculpture we can carve:
- The Date of your event
- Your name (a short name)
- A logo
- a small, short slogan or message
There are three varieties of Peacock - two originating from Asia and one from Africa. Unfortunately in an Ice Sculpture or Vodka Luge it is not quite feasible to carve an intricate, accurate or exact replica - or at least not the subtle differences between the varieties. We can carve however an 'impression' of a Peacock.
In order to create a stunning centre piece to your function or party, lighting of this Sculpture will be important.
White lighting (which we provide) will create the shimmer and shine and is the basis to light the actual sculpture. However, as Peacocks tend to be iridescent - purples, greens and hues of blue we be good to have. Providing additonal lighting along these colours will add an extra dimension. A purple/blue lamp pointing upwards at the back of the sculpture will create a beautiful impression.
Perhaps add a touch of red (just for an accent - not a colour you'll see on a Peacock) and a green light will create a nice addition.
