DOVES OF PEACE.
One of the most recognised symbols of peace is the dove.
Its origins are from the story of Noah and the Ark.
When the rains that flooded the earth stopped pouring
down, Noah sent out various birds to see if they would
bring back any sign of land to his boat.
He was anxious to begin life again on dry pasturage.
One dove eventually returned carrying an olive branch.
After World War II Pablo Picasso, was responsible for
the decisive use of the Dove of Peace : His lithograph
designed for the International Peace Congress in Paris,
1949, features the white ancestor of a new family of
Doves. since then, graphic artists have produced an
endless series of Doves of Peace in different shapes.
