It's immortality ~~~ Peacock

Photo: Indian blue peacock
One of the most ostentatiously adorned creatures on Earth, the peacock uses its brilliant plumage to entice females. ( From National Geographic )

So appaently,peacocks are large,colorful pheasauts known for their iridescent tails.

Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.

Females peahens are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.

The peacock is a symbol of immortality because the ancients believed that the peacock had flesh that did not decay after death.

As such,peacocks are  symbols of the resurrection,peace,serenity,and immortality etc.

The Goddess of the Rainbow ~~~ Iris

 Iris is the name of the Goddess of the Rainbow, surely one of the best assignments on Olympus. And because of the great elegance of the iris bloom, it has been the symbol of monarchs and royal families throughout history. In fact, one of the earliest known artworks of an iris is a fresco in King Minos' palace on the Greek Island of Crete.

The iris has probably second place as the favored flower in great art. After the rose which is surely No. 1, irises appear in paintings by Leonardo daVinci, Durer, Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh, (whose famous painting “Irises” set an all-time auction price in recent years, selling for over 53 million dollars), Gauguin, and of course, Claude Monet.      
See below:
