Description
A dove, gentle symbol of peace then as now, forms the body of this lovely lamp. Her tail is the wick spout, with a feathered cover to extinguish the glow. Though she has been given feet to stand, rings indicate she may also have been made to hang--the closest she ever came to flight. Around her neck is a pendant, which suggests she was once somebody's pet. Taken in by her sweetness and charm, we might agree to make her ours as well. - (FZ.107)
