The image of the peacock along with smaller but equally stunning birds are encircled in a blanket of blooming peonies of different colors, is inspired by the wallpaper art in one of the chambers of the New Palace in Sanssouci Park. This particular royal bedchamber belonged to the younger brother of King Frederick the Great, Prince Henry of Prussia. While his older brother preferred the impressive Sanssouci Palace, Prince Henry settled in the New Palace.
Started in 1749 as commissioned by King Frederick the Great as a summer refuge from his busy schedule, the area of Sanssouci Park became the centralized sphere for many royal architecture and gardening. The landscaped gardens of the Park contain many fruit trees, flowers and vegetable gardens in accordance with the wish of the King to combine the beautiful with the functional.
The New Palace was completed in 1769 and is considered as the final Baroque Prussian palace. One of the royal apartments within the palace belonged to Prince Henry of Prussia. This royal bedchamber's walls are embellished with images of peafowls, other avian species and blossoming peonies.
