Capiz Dove Ornament
Peace on Earth—a holiday message everyone shares! Dove with olive branch is handcrafted in translucent Capiz- a thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells, and after they have dried they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process.
