Dolly Unithan - Installations

  The installations of “Doves” comprise doves suspended from streams of netting.   They are used metaphorically as symbols of universal peace.   The dimensions of the art work and repeated formations of the doves serve to reinforce the projected message of peace. 
In the shared collective experience, the doves offer spiritual communion in reflecting humanity’s yearning for peace.
