    I just came across this 18th century Japanese painting on the website of the Freer Sackler Gallery (Smithsonian Institution), and thought you green pea people might be interested!

    That is very interesting. Thanks for posting that. It sure is a nice looking leggy green.

    I am always amazed at how Japanese Peafowl paintings convey the train feathers.
    Thanks for sharing that! Anything green peafowl and art related is definitely interesting to me! [​IMG]

    Sometimes a painting can be a witness to history!
    Here, peacock and glycine from 340 years ago at the beginning of the Showa era.
    This proves that the green peacock pied existed!

    I found a Chinese video where we see wild green peacocks with large white spots.
