Do you know the story of Argus and his 100 eyes?
According to Greek Mythology, Argus was a giant that had 100 eyes. Some say they were all in his head, others say there were everywhere on his body. When he would sleep at night, some of his eyes stayed open to always be on guard and watchful.
Argus was very powerful and was used by the Greek Gods to slay Gods or humans gone astray. The goddess Hera appointed Argus to watch over Io, a priestess whom Zeus had turned into a cow. Zeus sent his son Hermes to free Io. Hermes told stories and played music for Argus until he succeeded in making all 100 eyes go to sleep at the same time. Hermes wasted no time and slew the giant. Hera was so distraught, the goddess took Argus's eyes and placed them on the tail of her sacred bird, the peacock.
