Dove of Peace Ornament
Peace on Earth—a message we can all share and our Dove of Peace Ornament is a beautiful symbol of this message.
According to the Biblical story, after the great flood, Noah sends out a dove to see if the waters have subsided. The dove returns with a fresh olive leaf in her beak and since then the dove became a symbol of peace.
Our Dove of Peace Ornament is handcrafted in translucent capiz shell. Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process.
Handmade by Fair Trade artists in the Philippines. Measures 2" x 3".
