Peacock in Ravenna by Lawrence OP on Flickr.
The peacock was an early Christian symbol of immortality and the Resurrection because the ancients believed that the flesh of the peacock did not decay. Moreover, it was thought that the peacock sheds it old feathers every year and grows newer, brighter ones. This phenomenon was thus taken as a symbol of the exchanging of the mortal earthly body for the glorified body and eternal life of the glorified soul in Heaven. This 6th-century mosaic of the peacock is in St Vitale in Ravenna.
