It’s the patterns on the feathers that make this peacock-sized bird so awesome.   How can a bird that grows only black, white and brown feathers be so attractive?  For me, it’s because the patterns vary so much.  The bird sports eyes on some of its wing feathers that look exactly like the eye spots on some moths.  And there are not only one or two eyes on each feather but 10 or more!  At 30 inches long, these impress me as the most wondrous feathers on earth.  

I still have a number of these argus alphabet posters. They were printed a few years ago and I have been so busy with original art that these were not marketed much or distributed. If you would like one or some (or wholesale orders) email us at info@featherfolio.com. Retail is $10 each plus shipping.

The Poster: 24 x 18 inches, $10 each, $5 shipping for up to 7 (within the USA call for shipping prices outside the USA). Shipped rolled in a thick tube.
