Doves are an ancient symbol of hope. They are not only a bird but a harbinger of new beginnings. When things seem bleak, look for a dove and hold faith in knowing not all is lost. Each dove in this collection is named for a real person who gave hopeful words to someone who needed them most. They are small, living tributes to what the world needs most right now – hope.
- Every dove is 5"x 5"x.75" on an artist-grade cotton canvas using archival paint and varnish. These birds are made to last for generations!
- Every readymade dove ornament is different and chosen at random within the collection. Doves are already wrapped and ready to mail (read: no requests for specific names or color shades, sorry!).
- Every dove in the Wombat Stew collection comes in shades of periwinkle into deep blue-purple. If the name sounds weird that's because it is. My four-year-old picked it from the title of one of her favorite children's book's, Wombat Stew. It's about boiling a wombat and can get kinda dark but don't worry it turns out okay in the end. It has a lot of Australian words in it that won't make sense to Americans but I recommend it just the same. This was a fun tangent. Good on you for reading the fine print here.
- Every dove is named after someone who gave words of *hope* to another in a bleak time. These names are written on the side of each canvas. And while I do not sell doves to anyone on account of their names, I believe the birds are not assigned entirely at random. I cannot tell you how often recipients report back that they received the name they needed, not the name they wanted.
- Every dove comes with a black and white stripe grosgrain ribbon. Don't want the ribbon and just see it hanging flat on the wall? No problem. Give it a few firm twists and the ribbon will unscrew. The canvas will easily hang on any standard nail.
Because every artwork is different, your ornament will be a surprise. This is limited run and custom requests are not available at this time.
Merry Christmas to all!
