The DM Collection | Dove of Peace Card

5 items left

Why does the dove represent peace? It probably stems from a series of Sumerian legends and poems about the mythological hero-king Gilgamesh in the 7th century BC. In one of these poems, a dove and a raven are released to find land. Later in the Christian mythologies, the dove appears in the Book of Genesis as a symbol and a tool of God. The dove plays a key role in the life of Noah. He releases a Dove during the great flood, she returns with a leaf in her mouth indicating that the flood waters had receded and she had found land.
