the peacock is a thing of beauty. with velvet shades of blue, green, and purple, the peacock has been highly regarded throughout religious and cultural histories. in hinduism, it's associate with benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and knowledge. in greco-roman mythology, the peacock's feathers were placed with hundreds of eyes, symbolizing the vault of heaven and the eyes of the stars. in christianity, the bird is an ancient symbol of eternal life. i just think peacocks are unusual and simply striking. so why not incorporate that into your home.
