The vibrantly-colored feather of the peacock dazzles us with its iridescent colors and mysterious eye-like shape and has fascinated people throughout history.
Because of their beautiful feathers and dramatic displays, peacocks have become powerful, mystical symbols and are considered sacred in many cultures.
In Greek mythology, the goddess Hera placed the 100 eyes of her most loyal watchman, Argus, on the peacock to honor his memory. For the Greeks, the peacock symbolized the "all-seeing knowledge" of the heavens.
In Asia, the peacock is associated with the Quan Yin and her great love, compassion and goodwill.
Legend says that Quan Yin was on her way up to Heaven to become immortal when she heard a cry of suffering back on Earth and asked to be sent back to stay until all sufferings had ended.
This pendant, with its flowing lines and nicely proportioned "eye" brings to life the lush, dramatic look of a real peacock feather.
The pendant is the same on both sides and is polished to a bright, eye-catching finish.
