The peacock is native to India and further east. It also has a long history in the Middle East including ancient Babylon. In his 1836 book On the Mental Illumination and Moral Improvement of Mankind, Reverend Thomas Dick calls the peacock “the most beautiful bird in the world.” But throughout history, there has always been more to the peacock than its dazzling plumage. The male peacock’s plumage of shimmering blues and greens fascinate even as its raucous cries seem so at variance with such beauty.
The peacock is a symbol of immortality. The Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras wrote that the soul of Homer moved into a peacock, perhaps reflecting on the importance of the centuries-old popularity of the Greek poet. While continuing to keep its association with wealth, the bird, which replaces its feathers every year, also became a symbol of renewal and resurrection in early Christian and Byzantine culture. Peacock imagery appears in early Christian tomb paintings and mosaics, especially concerning the resurrection.
Peacock's big, richly colored outsized tail brandishes in one of nature’s more extravagant courtship displays. It is no surprise that it became the objects of arts all over the world.
