Peace Doves at Rochester Cathedral

February 11, 2023 @ 12:00 am - April 21, 2023 @ 12:00 am

In February 2023 Rochester Cathedral will be transformed by ‘Peace Doves’ an artwork by Peter Walker Sculptor

Bringing a message of peace and hope, the Peace Doves artwork has been created from thousands of individually hand made paper doves, together they collectively form this beautiful artwork which as a whole reflects joining together in unity, peace and hope moving forward.

Peace Doves is an artwork that has been re-curated for different spaces as it tours the UK, adaptations have been seen in Liverpool, Lichfield, Derby and now at Sheffield and Rochester.  The artwork will be on display from 11th February to 21st April  2023.

The Peace Doves project has incorporated educational engagement with many schools and community groups in the local area and each person has written individual messages of peace and hope onto each dove.

Throughout history the dove has been viewed as a symbol of peace in many different cultures.  For example in Greek mythology the dove is a symbol of the renewal of life, and liturgically within the Bible the dove appears at the Baptism of Jesus in the river Jordon and in the teachings of Noah and the Ark as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.
