Peacock feathers

IMGP1913 - Version 2

Peacocks are beautiful creatures and they embody positive virtues in mythology – characteristics like knowledge, patience and immortality.

Oddly enough however, peacock feathers are a symbol of bad luck, largely because its many-eye pattern is considered to be the Seer of Everything. It is said that if a person sleeps on a bed of peacock feathers, it will bring him death. Hmm. Bear that in mind next time you go out to buy new bedding !

  1. So, gorgeous but deadly, huh? Lethal combination! Your photo definitely does justice to the “gorgeous” part! Zoom lens? As for the deadly, thanks for the heads up 😉

    1. Not a massive zoom. The top picture is a crop of the 2nd image, which was the peacock tail as it ran away from me! But an interesting story about its evil symbolism!
