Peacocks have a rich heritage in the decorative arts, particularly tile, for millenia. They appear in early Christian tomb art, in ancient Rome and Byzantium.
In India, Peacock was created from one of the feathers of Garuda, a mythical bird and a carrier of Lord Vishnu. It is a symbol of the circle of time. In a battle between Ravana and Lord Indra, Peacock spread his feathers wide open to hide Indra. In return, Indra made the peacock's feathers iridescent. Indra is seated on a peacock throne. Peacocks are also associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of weath. Peacock feathers in the home can attract wealth and prosperity.
