Peacock and its beauty   Back to Gallery  


Not only do peacocks possess the ability to turn poison into beauty, but they use this ability to help others avoid poison.

In some cultures, the peacock is a symbol of purification.  It is said that the peacock has the ability to turn poison into its beautiful colors. Peacocks live in forests with poisonous plants, they eat the poisonous plants that no other animals can eat, and instead of being poisoned, peacocks transform the poisons they eat into beautiful, colorful and vibrant plumage and thrive. So often the world offers us "poison" in different forms in our lives.  When we find our own strength we are able to turn this poison into our own colors.  We become stronger, more vibrant and more lively when we survive suffering and make meaning.
