Initially I thought this was a somewhat primitive church piece from a somewhat primitive alter, but it didn't take me long to realize it is a parade float fragment from the end of World War Two. Over 4 feet long and nearly as tall, the dove of peace would wiggle along the parade route on the wire stand. Two-sided plywood with creamy white paint on the letters and dove, a nice red base with a hole to connect it for the slow ride through town.
