In the Artist’s own words:

Children of Peace Bronze is a sculpture of a boy and girl releasing doves. I really enjoyed creating this piece because of its message. Children are the hope of the future and if anything represents peace it is children releasing doves into the air. I wanted to depict both genders representing all mankind in the same noble effort. The arched backs are congruent with the energy and design of the piece, and holding olive branches and roses (further symbols of peace) brought in the element of nature. Peace is something our world cries out for and as an artist and a father of five, I believe it starts with our children. If our youth have the opportunity to grow up in peaceful and loving homes and are taught early on the need for harmony and concern; the entire world, the entire universe, will spin in a brighter and higher direction. In my sculpture, the children’s bodies form simple arches, and arches are the beginning of circles and circles are simple and beautiful forms that represent peace, harmony, and eternity.
