PEACOCK

Peacocks, who are so lovely to behold! A delicacy, a delight. In medieval and Renaissance art they indicate heaven.

More recently, peacocks are associated with pride.

But I would like to revive the heavenly connection, especially where it comes to Hera: The Queen of Olympus and Archetypal Wife. Hera’s pride leads to jealousy of her husband’s mistresses. But she is reclaiming her rightful place as Queen.
