Contemporary designers continue to be inspired by timeless motifs found in nature, such as floral patterns and flower heads (lots 23 and 24), as well as peacocks - a favourite in Indian jewellery design. The versatile peacock, also the national bird of India, is often recognisable by its glorious plumage (lot 22), and is adapted not only as a form but also included in enamelled and engraved designs.
