Lauded as the king of birds, peacock is elegant in form and posture. To exemplify the white peacock's outstanding beauty, Chao's work painstakingly details the delicacy and colour variation of its plumage. The whole piece perfectly blends the colour accents of Japanese paintings and the brushwork of Chinese paintings.
