Theotokos of the Olive Branch
This Byzantine inspired painting shows a mother Dove and her twin squabs, as a Theotokos image. The chicks are nestled with straw and twisting vines with tiny blue flowers. Ombre glowing light to dark green emanates from the mother dove's halo, and she holds an olive branch in her beak. The frame is metallic gold with green accent and vintage wear.
This highly detailed piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
