Art Nouveau artists loved peacocks, with their extravagant multi-colored feathers. Müller, who designed a handful of similar, horizontal format decorative panels, approaches these birds from an unusual perspective; depicted from the ground level, their beautiful plumage is seen up-close, as are the plants and vegetation that surround them as they strut.
