Contemplation by Rosemarie Forsythe, 48"x36” acrylic on canvas.  So many cultures see the peacock in interesting ways.  Christians see it as a sign of hope — of auspicious events yet to unfold.  Muslims see peacocks as a cosmic symbol representing the whole universe or the sun at its zenith.  Several cultures believe the peacock can shift something negative into a positive.  The Cambodians believe peacocks disable poisons when they destroy serpents.  In China and Vietnam, the peacock is a symbol of peace and prosperity.  The Yazidi believe the peacock has the power to reconcile opposites — an excellent symbol for a peacemaker.
