Description

The three Sand Dollar Doves are from the inside of a real Maine sand dollar. They are displayed in a wooden frame, on colorful paper under glass. The frame opening is 2.5×3.5 inches and it can either stand upright or hang on a wall. These beautifully simple pieces are created by The Deep Blue.

After a sand dollar vacates it’s shell, it leaves behind it’s exoskeleton, sometimes in tact. More often than not the exoskeleton breaks revealing the five v-shaped pieces within that help the sand dollar consume food throughout their life. When the sand dollar dries up, these “teeth” become detached. They resemble small birds in flight, and due to their white coloring, peaceful doves are often brought to mind. Many people have come to associate both the sand dollar itself and its doves as symbols of peace. It is often said that releasing a sand dollar’s doves releases peace into the world.

There is a lovely poem written describing the Legend of the Sand Dollar.The original author of the poem is unknown but the legend has been passed on for many years. Below is an excerpt of what is thought to be the original poem.
Now break the centre open
And here you will release,
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace.
