Peacock


We just learned about the Christian symbol of the Dove.

Another Christian symbol is the Peacock.

Long ago people thought that the peacock's body did not get old after it died, so it was like a symbol of living forever like Jesus.

The large parts of the peacock's tail that look like eyes were thought of like the all seeing eyes of God.
Soemtimes pictures of peacocks drinking water were used as symbols of Christians drinking from the waters of eternal life.
