This piece was designed with the nation of Cambodia in mind. The dove presents a promise and a hope that there is a better future. It presents an assurance that there shall be no more fighting amidst the nation; all at war is now at peace.
The stalk of wheat is a reminder of humility, for even the tiniest grain in Cambodia is treasured by those who cannot be assured of it.
May the wearer remember Cambodia’s need for support every time the brass dove and wheat are intertwined and be an ambassador of this message to others.
