Hera in Minos' Palace Picture

In Greek Mythology, Hera - Queen of the gods - was symbolised by the peacock, and there were quite a number of these wandering about in Minos' palace, in Crete~ I like to think it's the Greek having a giggle at the tourists~

But they're nasty little buggers. You get in their way and you'll bloody know about it ¬_¬
