Dove of Peace Silk Tie
“When the dove returned to him in the evening, see!, a freshly picked olive leaf in her beak! Then Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth”. (Genesis 7:11)
The silhouetted image of the dove is showing the constant upward flow of the bird. Just as Noah stretched out his hand to receive the dove and bring her in, so too must we 'stretch out' our hand to bring the dove which has come represent peace.
Biblical text has been, and is, an important and influential part of civilization. Biblical passages have kept commentators busy throughout the ages. A passage relevant 2000 years ago can become of value and be significant even in these modern times. The Bible has played a significant role not only in religious communities, but art, literature, medicine, business and politics are indebted to biblical motif, themes and images.
