"The Doves of Hope" an installation at the Washington National Cathedral
German artist Michael Pendry installed the Les Colombes (the Doves) exhibit: a winding column of more than 2,000 origami paper doves in the Washington National Cathedral. Symbolizing hope and the Holy Spirit, the doves encourage a feeling of optimism. This installation in the Cathedral, embodies our resolve to be kind and to do our part in making a better tomorrow.
