In the past, only officials with high positions in the royal court were allowed to use peacock feathers to wear on their hats. Therefore, the peacock is considered to represent authority and position in society of the owner.
Legend has it that along with Garuda, Peacock was born from the Phoenix with a vile nature. She even swallowed Buddha Tathagata into her stomach and then brought him to Linh Son Mountain. Therefore, in legend, Peacock was given the title of Buddha Mother. In real life, it does not have such spiritual power, but Peacock is still the most splendid and honored bird of all species. The colorful plumage, forming the brilliant dress of beautiful women for thousands of years, is still considered a work of art. Peacock is a symbol of nobility both externally and internally.
Recreating the image of Peacock that nature has drawn requires extreme meticulousness, artistic inspiration and the ability of artisans to choose materials. La Sonmai believes that the magically typical colors of traditional lacquer are perfectly suitable to depict the image of this marvelous bird. This is also a message from La Sonmai artisans: cherish natural beauty, and always be proud and steadfast in your dreams towards the future.
