Through portico of my elegant house you stalk
With your wild furies, disturbing garlands of fruit
And the fabulous lutes and peacocks, rending the net
Of all decorum which holds the whirlwind back.

-Sylvia Plath, “Conversation Among The Ruins”

If you have ever visited Eden, you’ve no doubt encountered George, our six foot tall taxidermy peacock (we also introduced him here a few months ago.)  George has graced a few spots in the shop, most recently our holiday window:

Peacocks have made appearances in a number of famous boutique windows as well as some very elaborate retail displays:

A number of very glamorous people (including Liberace, Phyllis Morris, Elton John and fashion designer Anna Sui) have also decorated their abodes with these stunning stuffed birds.  Here’s a taste of some spaces made more bold with the inclusion of taxidermy peacocks:

Fancy the idea of owning your very own peacock with which to grace your home’s elegant porticos?

Order one by emailing info[at]edenportland.com or calling (503) 222-2285 during business hours.  Rest assured, these birds die natural deaths and are not farmed for taxidermy purposes!

If you love the look of peacocks and are not ready to commit to a bird of your own, consider one of our decorative embroidered throw pillows:
