FEATHERS - POETIC MASTERPIECE OF EVOLUTION
"The sight of a feather in a peacock's tail, whenever I gaze it, makes me sick!". - Charles Darwin
It was the aesthetic that troubled him. He couldn't explain their meaning. Darwin later realized how evolution brought beauty into the world.
Feathers are probably the most poetic masterpiece of evolution. Extravagance in color, form, structure, and function.
People succumb to their charisma, even beyond the natural sciences, in mythology, culture and history of art. Feathers have an almost sacred meaning.
