The peacock is a symbol of beauty and dignity. An old Chinese legend tells of the daughter of a mighty military commander who painted a peacock on an ornament screen and promised to marry the first man who could hit the peacock twice with arrows while running. A Tang emperor put out the two eyes of the peacock on two consecutive tries and won a bride. "Selection by hitting the bird screen" thus entered the Chinese language as a euphemism for finding a husband.

For persons dreaming of peacocks, there lies below the brilliant and flashing ebb and flow of the stream of pleasure and riches, the slums of sorrow and failure, which threaten to mix with its clearness at the least disturbing influence. For a woman to dream that she owns peacocks, denotes that she will be deceived in her estimate of man's honor. To hear their harsh voices while looking upon their proudly spread plumage, denotes that some beautiful and well appearing person will work you discomfort and uneasiness of mind.
