Zeus sent his son Hermes to release Io from her captivity. Hermes disguised himself as a shepherd boy and befriended Argus. The shepherd boy talked and talked and played soothing music on the pipes, until finally Argus’ many eyes began to close, one by one. When Argus was finally asleep Hermes cut off the herdsman’s head and released the heifer. What is the connection with the peacock? The magnificent iridescent tail feathers of the peacock are decorated withcircular patterns like eyes. That is due to Hera. So when Argus was slain, the goddess reclaimed his hundred eyes and set them as ornaments into the tail of her favorite bird.
