Peacock Symbolism in "The Funeral Dancer"!


***Peacock Symbolism in "The Funeral Dancer"***

Many people who watched "The Funeral Dancer" at one of our recent festivals have asked about the meaning of the peacock in "The Funeral Dancer", so we would like to tell you a bit about it.

First of all it's great that you noticed this recurring theme!

As most characters in "The Funeral Dancer" are not very self-aware and ignorant when it comes to the reason why they are there- honouring a dead person- the peacock seemed to be good contrast. The peacock is a possessor of some of the most admired human characteristics, and is a symbol of integrity and the beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colors.

In history, myth, legend and lore, the peacock symbolism carries portents of: Nobility, Holiness, Guidance, Protection and Watchfulness.

The peacock is associated with Kwan-yin in Asian spirituality. Kwan-yin (or Quan Yin) is also an emblem of love, compassionate watchfulness, good-will, nurturing, and kind-heartedness.

Legend tells us she chose to remain a mortal even though she could be immortal because she wished to stay behind and aid humanity in their spiritual evolution.

So we picked the colors of the peacock throughout the film as well as some peacock symbols like feathers to show that even though these people are living in a technology-driven society that seems to blind them, not all is lost. The peacock will protect them and eventually guide them in the right direction to become more compassionate and aware of people that surround them.
