Nature's Keeper

The Goddess of Mercy needing a keeper to watch over the animals of nature, summoned a large tawny bird with long tail feathers. She waved her hand over the bird and his plumage transformed at once into resplendent feathers with an eye at the end of each. Kannon declared to all animals that Peacocks would watch over them for her. Exemplifying dignity and beauty, Peacocks proudly fulfill their mission.
