There seem to be a number of bird like forms in the Edakkal caves, which are also linked to circular sun signs. The bird,especially the peacock, is a sun symbol, with the many eyes of the sun to be found in its splendid tail. Peacock images are found all over India in folk art, and as far back as in Mohenjo daro civilization, we see a peacock type of bird in whose womb is a human form, indicating that the primal person is born out of the bird which becomes the vehicle of the soul.
