In Harmony

In Harmony Award

There are three elements of this piece all working in accord. The dove symbolizes all life on the planet and represents peace as well. It is over-sized to emphasize the great need for peace in our world. The dove is emerging from the human figure, because it is people who give peace life. The arms of the figure are raised in a supporting gesture, and the leg is thrown upward to suggest joy and exuberance. The figure is rising up out of the earth. Humans are grounded in the earth and can reach beyond themselves in stewardship of the world. The Dove, the Earth, and Humanity . . . all in perfect harmony.
