2 Watchers

Last year, I had the opportunity to be the featured artist for the Greater Huntsville Humane Society Dog Ball. I was enthralled at the prospect of painting on a hydrant, but I also saw so much potential for the hydrant itself. I wanted to make it functional art; something beautiful and useful.

As a result, thanks to Aaron Hanson, a Police K9 Handler/K9 Eendora (N-dora) who also has amazing mechanical skills, this year, my wish to create a functional and beautiful piece came to fruition.

Aaron fashioned a shelf out of fiberglass that houses a Bluetooth speaker inside of the hydrant. He also crafted a lip around the top to hide the fairy lights I added.

After this was complete, I was able to begin painting and adding hundreds of crystals to really enhance dimension and sparkle.

Why a Peacock?

A peacock is a symbol of the integrity and beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colors. In history, myth, and legend, peacock symbolism is related to:

  • Nobility
  • Holiness
  • Guidance
  • Protection, and
  • Watchfulness

What a great way to decorate your home with a piece of art that symbolizes these qualities and is functional to boot!
