Hera and the Peacock
Hera was the sister and wife of Zeus, and she was venerated as the goddess of lawful marriage, family and childbirth. She was also regarded as the guardian of women and children. She was revered in Greece, and temples were erected to her in Argos and Salmos. Her spouse Zeus had many extramarital affairs, which made her furious and vengeful toward him and his mistresses, and her fury became as renowned as her beauty among both humans and immortals. She was called Juno in ancient Roman religion, and the cuckoo and peacock are associated with her. Since the Renaissance, Hera has been depicted riding in a chariot pulled by peacocks, further cementing the connection.

According to Ovid, Hera became furious with Zeus for having fallen in love with one of her priestesses, Io. To keep watch over her, Hera transformed Io into a cow and gave her to Argus, her all-seeing giant with 100 eyes. To save her, Zeus dispatched Hermes to execute Argus. Hera had known all along, though, and before Hermes could hypnotize and murder Argus, she took a hundred eyes from the monster's body and affixed them to the tail of a peacock.
