woodcut on parchment

Created for Women of the Book, the woodcut print depicts doves and pigeons serving as an offering for worship. There are seven birds, mirroring the days of creation. In the story of Noach, birds heralded hope for the future and brought the promise of life on earth to the residents of the ark. As archetype, they possess significance in that they inhabit earth, sea, and sky, evoking humanity’s deepest aspirations and fears. Birds assume the persona of angel: messenger, guide, harbinger of life and death.
