Handmade paper origami dove

This elegant, carefully hand-folded paper origami dove comes in a variety of colours and papers (please add a note to your order if you would like a specific colour or a more traditionally masculine/feminine pattern).

Doves are considered ‘birds of peace’.  They mate for life (hence the term ‘love birds’) and work together building their nest and raising their young. In contrast to birds of prey, who will attack their neighbours, the dove is a bird of peace, preferring to eat seeds, nuts and fruit and can be easily trained to eat from a hand.

The Epic of Gilgamesh (a poem from ancient Mesopotamia) tells of a dove being released to search for the end of the deluge and in the biblical story (Genesis 8:11), a dove was released after the flood by Noah to search for land.
