Doves

Symbols in Renaissance Art: 

Throughout the centuries doves have appeared as symbols in numerous religious and secular settings but may be best known for its wide use in Christianity. Renaissance artists utilized doves primarily in religious artwork to depict the third element of the trinity, the Holy Spirit. Shown above the figures in the painting, wings spread and often in a burst of light gives the dove an ethereal appearance, indicating its religious significance.   

Below are a few pieces from my Dove series made in Los Angeles Ca.

Angels

Artists of the Renaissance era painted  characters called "putti," which looked like male babies or toddlers. These characters represented the presence of pure love around people and often sported wings like angels.

The Greek Cross

is composed of four arms of the same length, crossing each other at a straight angle. It is typical of the Byzantine art, alternating with the Latin cross as base diagrams for churches. Its four equal beams and the fact that it can be contained in a square, make it the idealized cross, which represents the Divine Nature of Christ. 

Featured here are several works from my Greek Cross series. They are 38" x 38" inches. Displayed as a unit, each panel is 12" x 12".
