Large oil and acrylic on canvas. I got the inspiration watching an episode of Antiques Roadshow where they were going into details on a chest of drawers, with dovetail joints. This painting show a more literal take on dovetail joints, there are twelve in total, a number symbolic in religion and mythology – 12 apostles of Jesus, 12 sons of Odin, 12 days of Christmas. This compliments the doves which symbolise peace.
