Artists Concept

The Dove:

The Dove is the emblem of the Holy Spirit throughout Christianity and is instantly recognizable as a symbol of inspired through, purity and peace. It is 1200mm from wing tip to wing tip and its abraded brass finish makes it shimmer in the light. The Dove is within a circle of approx. 1250mm.

The Circle:

The Circle is a universal symbol of totality, wholeness and original perfection; the self; the unmanifest; infinity. In this context it represents particularly the concept that:

Through Christian worship the Holy Spirit joins Past, Future and Present with Eternity.

The 7 Rays:

The seven rays symbolize, the ‘ Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit ‘ which derive from the original concept of Devine effulgence.

  1. Wisdom
  2. Understanding
  3. Counsel
  4. Fortitude
  5. Knowledge
  6. Piety
  7. Fear of the Lord
