The Hidden Meanings of Your Dreams:
The peacock’s tail, in particular, appears in the eighty-fourth emblem of the Ars Symbolica of Bosch as a symbol for the blending together of all colours and for the idea of totality. This explains why, in Christian art, it appears as a symbol of immortality and of the incorruptible soul.
The common motif of the two peacocks symmetrically disposed on either side of the Cosmic Tree or hom—a feature which came to Islam from Persia and subsequently reached Spain and the West—denotes the psychic duality of man (related to the myth of the Gemini) drawing its life-force from the principle of unity. In the mystic horology, the peacock corresponds to dusk.
