The Peacock was considered Sacred by the Egyptian, Greek, Jewish and Indian Devotees of the Supreme Lord HERU / HELI / ELI / HARI!
The Peacock, Phoenix and Golden Pheasant, Cock and related birds were interchangeble as belonging to one of the important categories of the Sacred Birds of HERU, HELI, ELI, ALI or HARI (etc.). Specifically the Peacock common to India was also the Emblem of the Jewish Deity ELI and His Royal House of King David and Solomon of Jerusalem. Thus the Peacock also represented Jerusalem, Judah, Israel, Judaism and Jesus Christ as the Jewish Messiah.
The Peacock, which was often interchangeble with the Phoenix, was also an important symbol of Helios and His Sacred Cities of Heliopolis, the original City of Heliopolis (AUM/N AMUN, AMEN, ON) in Egypt, and the later City of Heliopolis Baalbek in Lebanon.
The Sacred Peacock of Helios of Heliopolis is primarily remembered now because it later became associated with Saint Barbara, who according to Tradition was born in Heliopolis (Baalbek) Lebanon, and was martyred in Heliopolis Egypt. Of course the Peacock or Phoenix was the Symbol of Helios (HERU-AUSU) KOUROS (KRISHNA) of RHODES, the Presiding Deity of the first HELIO-POLITAN Capital of Ancient Egypt, and of the great Heliopolitan Sacred City-State Nome Alliances or Federations of the entire Ancient World.
Helios KOUROS of Rhodes was also worshiped on the Isle of Crete. Sacred Art there depicts eyed feathers. I hope to be able to finish this Album, as a brief introduction to the Resurrection and Sun-Rise Herald, the Fire-Bird of the Ancients that was associated with the Dying and Rising Incarnation-King and Savior World-wide.
