The peacock’s feather since antiquity is an indication of magnificence and data; the formation of the attention provides a deeper symbolism because it creates the symbolism of the inside eye that stands for knowledge, studying and data. However we should do not forget that data with out divine love and humility is nugatory.This present the Golden Flute is about life’s classes to all humanity.
