Thousands of paper doves symbolize hope for 2021 at Washington Cathedral

Washington National Cathedral hosts an exhibition featuring thousands of origami doves as a symbol of hope for 2021. The cathedral is currently closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the art installation, entitled "Les Colombes" ("The Doves" in French), will run until May 2021 despite the Covid-19 closure. "It's a symbol we definitely need right now, a symbol of peace and hope and resilience," says German artist Michael Pendry. His paper doves have appeared in several cathedrals across the world over the past six years.
