Peacocks, who are so lovely to behold! A delicacy, a delight. In medieval and Renaissance art they indicate heaven.

More recently, peacocks are associated with pride.

But I would like to revive the heavenly connection

This little notebook contains my Symbol Dictionary. It came about from an exercise that Emma Willemse gave in her Conceptual Art Course: create a set of 26 personal symbols for use in art making. In my first iteration (which I did at varsity still so that was more than 10 years ago) the dictionary was a set of iconic drawings, cut out and made into a mobile. I wish I still had that. Symbols included a penguin, butterfly, unicorn, crab claws, eye of Horus and some designs I made up. The process led to my personal mythology (ah, my memory is coming back!)
