Many other artists also use dove imagery in paintings as a symbol of childhood. Images like 'Femme a Columbe' by Tamara De Lempicka use a combination of art deco styling and traditional Madonna and Child poses and expressions in order to display a mothers possessiveness of a child that will only leave if let go. Other artists use these same devices, such as Sandra Bierman. However, her dove painting, 'The Dove' reflects the joy of having an unexpected child while still using Madonna imagery, rather than the pain of them leaving.
Many Christian artists also use dove imagery in their work as a symbol of God's love and forgiveness. These works are typically less about the actual bird and more about its symbolism. These dove art prints, such as 'All Things Ready' serve as a symbol of hope and a reminder of God's promise not to leave them.
