Dove of Peace Ornament from the Philippines (IS)

Celebrate peace on earth this holiday with this lovely and light dove ornament. Dove with olive branch is handcrafted in translucent capiz. Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.

  • Capiz, wire
  • 3Lx2H inches
  • Made in the Philippines
