The beautiful, intricate works of art are suspended on ribbons from the ceiling of the grand cathedral. Each piece of paper contains a message of peace, hope, and love written by local school children and community groups invited to the cathedral pre-lockdown.
The installation was created by renowned sculptor and artist Peter Walker, who is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, London.
Walker attended the grand unveiling at Liverpool Cathedral on May 20 along with the Dean of Liverpool, the Very Reverend Dr. Sue Jones.
The installation, which was due to open last summer but was postponed because of the pandemic, is accompanied by a soundscape from composer David Harper.
Jones said: “We look forward to welcoming people to the Cathedral and we hope that you will encounter peace and the space to reflect on the past year.
“We feel enormously grateful to be able to host this amazing installation at Liverpool Cathedral.”
Walker added: “What I’ve always found when I’ve been into Liverpool and been up to the Cathedral is, it really is a community place.
“I think having a work where the community has written on these doves and thousands of children have participated in this project is a really important thing to be doing at this time.”
