Ringneck Dove family, with two parent birds in a nest of golden straw, protecting their newly hatched chick and an egg. Doves are devoted parents, with a mated pair partnering to rear their chicks (squabs) together. The frame is metallic gold with patina-style accents and vintage wear.
This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
