Designed and handmade by Nina Anthonijsz at MoodsWingz.Etsy.com ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All things have a story, and many of the stories chase each other, like circles in the sky.
To the ancients, the peacock symbolized the shimmering starry firmament of the night sky.
The Supreme Goddess, Hera, was first among the #Goddesses at Mount Olympus. In her reign, she had known both great joy and pain. She was a powerful patron of marriage and childbirth. Her quick wit often surpassed that of her husband, Zeus.
She lived in golden splendor, favoring the great citadel of Argos. Surrounded riches, she drove her chariot between Argos and Mount Olympus, through the heavens, in a chariot drawn by peacocks.
The story is told that after the death of a loyal watchman, Hera placed the hundred gem-like eyes of Argos Panoptes into the tail feathers of her peacocks. These great eyes, which can still be seen impressed on the tail feathers of the peacock, watched over her at night just like the dazzling #stars.
The great mortal artists of the East were inspired by the patterns they saw around them, including the natural designs to be found within the peacock’s #feathers. They used those patterns to create the designs we now know as Paisley.
Elegant and beautiful, Peacocks and Paisley bring to us an echo of the past.
