This is a photo of indigenous Egyptians (Kemetyu) celebrating in front of Rameses the Great’s Temple of Millions of Years (Abu Simbel). They perfectly demonstrate the variation of phenotypes within the African race of Pharaonic Kemet. Such variation is not limited to Kemet, but common in other African countries, like Chad, Mali, Eritrea, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Mauritania, Somalia, Uganda, and Niger. Keep this photo in mind when you look at the painted artifacts of Kemet because this is what they looked like.

"Malek Taus (ملك طاووس - Kurdish Tawûsê Melek), the Peacock Angel, is the Yazidi name for the central figure of their faith. The Yazidi consider Tawûsê Melek an emanation of God and a benevolent angel who has redeemed himself from his fall and has become a demiurge who created the cosmos from the Cosmic egg. After he repented, he wept for 7,000 years, his tears filling seven jars, which then quenched the fires of hell.  In art and sculpture, Tawûsê Melek is depicted as a peacock. However,  peacocks are not native to the lands where Tawûsê Melek is worshipped.”

PEACOCK ANGEL/PEACOCK KING

This deity also known as: Malak Taus; Melek Taus; Melek Taus

I first grew curious about this peacock king through the study of numbers (7 to be specific, it seems that there is a commonality in many systems of belief that there is 1 G-d with a group of 7 supporting angels). The Peacock angel is deity of the Yezidi religion. Yezidi directly translated to mean, “the people of the angels”. They reside in N. Iraq and are ethnic Kurds. Their religion is a religion that weaves together Sufi, Gnosticism, shamanic, Judaism, Mandaean, Zoroastrian and pre-Zoroastrian traditions and characteristics.  They hold strong to the claim that they possess the world’s oldest religion-pre-Abrahamic.  

Yezidism is a truly complex religion, but, by remaining in isolation, deep in the mountains, they have been able to preserve this primordial religion in spite of the fact that it is seated in the basin of a predominantly Islamic territory. 

Although Yezidism is monotheistic, they believe in one Supreme God. 

The Supreme God created (7) angels over the course of (7) days. The first of whom was The Peacock Angel. The Peacock angel ranked higher than the other (6) angels who were created to assist the Peacock angel in supervision of the world. The interesting thing is that the angels correlate to Westerners archangels, they are named: Dardiel, Israfel (Rafael), Michael, Gabriel, Shimnael and Nuriel. 

When the Peacock angel entered this dimension all the colors of the rainbow came through in the form of a peacock.  This peacock flew all around the world bestowing blessings eventually landing in Lalish or what is now recognized as modern Iraq. The Peacock Angel is credited with all the beauty in the world especially the worlds flora and fauna. He is the protector of the earth in spite of his dwelling in another dimension. It is said that he is a teacher to humanity and will return in an apocalyptic age possibly as a peacock. 

In 2007 a suicide bomber killed 400 Yezidis labeling them devil worshipped. They are targets because as the story of creation goes, God commanded the (7) angels to never bow down to anyone but him. When Adam was created it seems God gave an order to the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam and God’s new creation. Six of the (7) angels obeyed…the Peacock angel was not one of them. The Peacock angel was seen as defying God and was punished, being cast into the Abyss. He grieved and wept to no end, he repented for this sin. They believe he cried for 7,000 years. In his infinite mercy, the creator forgave him and returned him to his place as his chief angel to oversea the world on behalf of the creator.

Peacock Angel is actually not a name, but, a title. He is most often synchronized with Lucifer or Azazel. Muslims consider The Peacock Angel the devil, thus, Yezidis devil worshippers. The Yezidis believe that the Peacock Angel is not the devil, but, the savior and ruler of the universe who was made even more compassionate by the time spent in the abyss. His day of worship is Sunday and is encompasses all the colors if the rainbow. But, blue especially. As such, he is also known as the Blue God. He manifests as a peacock, man, boy, snake, rainbow or vibrant light.
