Mourning Dove Theotokos 

Theotokos refers to the Virgin and Child that derived from Christian religious canon.  I used this familiar imagery to depict a mother Mourning Dove and her twin squabs.  The scene shows the birds each surmounted by a gold leaf halo, with a background pattern of bright blue.  The antique frame is embellished with gold leaf and aged with patina accents of metallic gold.

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.
