Chosen as the emblem for the First International Peace Conference in Paris in 1949, Pablo Picasso’s Dove of Peace is an iconic international symbol for the peace movement and unity in times of division. Surrounded by an array of olive branches and colorful flowers, the piece is an offering to those struggling through conflict, and a symbol of joy to those striving to reach across barriers. What are you struggling to make peace with today? How might you extend or receive an olive branch to find joy and solace?
