Called "the bird with one hundred eyes" due to the eye-like patterns on its tail, peacocks are believed to be a harbinger of the approaching monsoon and therefore fertility. At the sight of dark clouds peacocks spread their tail and begin their yearly mating dances, strutting and displaying their feathers in an impressive fashion as if welcoming the gathering of clouds at the end of the summer. A design of front-facing peacocks is meant to evoke the bounty of nature.
