The peacock is a magnificent bird. It’s a creature of inspiration to most of us, who know (or hope) at some level that we are lovely, but are often intimidated about displaying our true colours in all their splendour. The peacock displays his beautiful plumage for all to see.
A peacock feather is a great example of a fractal in nature. Its iridescent plumage is remarkable and stunning. The white feathers have a pearlescent quality about them and reflect a different hue depending on the viewing angle.
Peacocks are a symbol of beauty, reminding us to take pleasure in life. It is a symbol of beauty, prosperity, royalty, love, compassion, soul and peace. In buddhism the peacock symbolises purity and their feathers are highly prized.
