Tragic death of a peacock
I was browsing my Facebook page and I stumbled upon a great page that forwards the most amazing pictures, called The Macabre And the Beautifully Grotesque. When I saw this picture below I was in awe, so gorgeous and somehow pretty sad and tragic.
This was made byMarc Dantan and you can find more of his work *here*. I have no idea what it’s called but it is truly beautiful, my imagination goes wild for pictures like this, looking for a story behind it. To me it looks like the peacock is about to die because if the way the feathers look a bit dull, like most of the life has flowed out of them and the bird is just waiting for what’s about to come, knowing it will come soon enough. No longer being able to strut around parading it’s beauty, maybe even hoping for it to be over because of sadness or pain.
So I took the colours of this image and tried to make something equally dulled down but still with a little hint of colour for the remaining colour in the feathers.
I didn’t want the entire look to be gloomy and sad so I wore a red dress nd some hairflowers with this look and that brightened it up quite a bit.
I like the brown tones in this look and I actually think the match the colours of the inspirational picture quite a bit. I’m not entirely sure about the eyeliner but it’s nice and in the look it does what it’s supposed to do: a hint of colour.
What do you think of this look and the inspirational picture? Do you know the Facebook page? I know some of my Facebook friends have already found it but it just deserves every follower it can get so if you’re into beautiful images, please follow them fast 😀
