Bronze Dove on Olive Wood

This bronze dove on olive wood was a lovely commission to make, with thanks to the patron, Father Niall Ahern.

I first carved the dove in white marble, then sand cast it in bronze.

I sourced the olive wood myself on a trip to Portugal, and the little bronze olive branch was made by my friend, Louiza Dimitriou, who lives and works in Athens.
