Other references in classical literature include the belief that upon death the otherwise-silent mute Swan would sing beautifully—hence the phrase Swan song, as well as Juvenal’s sarcastic reference to a good woman being a “rare bird, as rare on earth as a black swan”, from which we get the Latin phrase ara Swans, rare bird.

The peacock displays the divine shape of Omkara when it spread its magnificent plu,es into a full=blown circular form. In hindu believe peacock feathers also adorn the crest of Lord Krishna, an avatar of Lord Vishnu, one of the trimurti. Ancient Greek believed that the flesh of peafowl did not decay after death, so it became a symbol of immortality.
