captive peace birds - a character collecting symbols of peace - ai8 eps and 300dpi jpg included in the bundle.
Early Christians in Rome portrayed baptism with a dove holding a branch in its beak, a symbol they used on their sepulchres as an allegory of peace. The dove appears in many funerary inscriptions in the Roman catacombs, sometimes accompanied by the words in pace (Latin for "in peace".) For example, in the Catacomb of Callixtus there is a representation of a dove and branch next to a Latin inscription meaning "Nicella, God’s virgin, who lived for more or less 35 years. She was placed [here] 15 days before the Kalends of May [17th April]. For the well deserving one in peace." In another there is a shallow relief sculpture showing a dove with a branch flying to a figure marked in Greek ΕΙΡΗΝΗ (Eirene, or Peace).
