These 3 ceramic peacock bird beads are ready to enjoy or inspire something of your own creation! Kids LOVE to play with our animal beads as figurines. Crafters are inspired to make one-of-a-kind pieces. They each stand 1 1/8" tall, 1 1/4" wide, 5/8" thick and weigh 9 grams. The peacock is a magnificent male peafowl displaying many different colorful feathers. It is the male that has all the gorgeous tail feathers to attract a peahen, the female peafowl. Peacocks are proud, majestic, territorial creatures. They have been used as "guard dogs" by humans to alert the presence of a trespasser. Blue Peacocks are native to India and Sri Lanka while Green Peacocks are from Myanmar and Java. There is also a species called the Congo Peacock that inhabits African Rainforests.
