The paven (from Pavo, a peacock) is a grave, majestic dance.
The flesh of this Pavo was like softened ivory, and his fat like unto clotted cream.

The Indian peafowl (Pavo cristatus) usually lay their large white eggs on the ground in long grass or thick undergrowth.
Pavo Real—as brave a little man as ever was seen—made many salaams and obeisances, but move he would not.

The almost extinct Pavo Potsdamicus, if we remember correctly, was an occasional visitor to the island.
The peacock, burong marak (Pavo), appears to be well known to the natives, though I believe not common.
