US290 – Dove and Rainbow – Holocaust Tile by Amber Vergara


This artwork by Amber Vergara, is inspired by “Night” by Elie Wiesel and the Tile Wall at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The dove symbolizes peace and can signify the delivery of a message from a loved one. Here, the dove reflects the spirits of those who perished during the Holocaust. The rainbow symbolizes new beginnings and hope. Rainbows often appear after a thunderstorm, and those who survived have the power to share their stories with those who stand in solidarity alongside them.
