This solid bronze Dove of Peace Plaque depicts the Holy Spirit as a dove, a multi-faceted and deeply biblical symbol reminding us of God’s grace and covenants as well as God’s enduring presence.. This plaque is versatile and compact at 2 inches by 1.75 inches.

This plaque makes an excellent gift for all seasons, but is especially appropriate at Confirmation.
My Peace I Bring to You
Peace is a cornerstone of Christ’s message, and in an era that does not necessarily value peace, artistic reminders of Jesus’ many exhortations to peace are powerful Christian gifts. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27). The dove, of course, has a multi-faceted history in the symbolism of our faith. The first connotation, of course, is after the Flood when a dove alights with an olive branch as a symbol of God’s renewed covenant with humanity. Additionally, the dove reminds us of the Holy Spirit, and God’s enduring presence in the deep fabric of our life. Whether as a gift to help your own devotion to God and the Holy Spirit, or as a Confirmation gift for a young person, the Dove of Peace Plaque is a compact but powerful gift.
The Holy Spirit as a Dove – Mark 1:9-11
At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
