Dove Commemorative Sculpture by Michael Aram
This Commemorative Dove Sculpture is a limited edition of 500 pieces based on a monumental sculpture by Aram depicting Noah's Ark which was gifted to Pope Francis. In the story of the Ark, the Dove symbolically returns to the Ark with an olive branch in its beak, depicting the first sign of life in a new world. Natural and Oxidized Brass. Marble.
Aram's work is full of meaning, and olive branches and birds have appeared before in his work. For Aram, birds symbolize faith and steadiness on the journey back home. Olive branches are traditional symbols which represent peace, life, hope, and victory.
"The metaphor of a dove with an olive branch in its beak as a symbol of peace and new beginnings is inspirational to me in an ever changing world."-Michael Aram
