Wenceslaus Hollar’s peacocks


Juno and the peacock (1665).

Wenceslaus Hollar (1607–1677) did more than just peacocks, of course, as you can discover if you browse the substantial collection of his work at the University of Toronto. Both these pieces illustrate Aesop’s fables. (See here and here.)
