Peace on Earth—a holiday message everyone shares. Dove with olive branch is handcrafted in translucent capiz. Capiz is the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children. Capiz, wire - 3Lx2H inches - Made in the Philippines
