Haitian Metal Dove with Olive Branch
The Dove with Olive Branch has become the universal symbol of peace, love and freedom. Our Haitian Metal Dove with Olive Branch is wonderful in every detail, including a 3-dimensional wing that bends out.
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 and freedom.
