Byzantine style portrait of a pigeon on round canvas. Deep shadows and crisp highlights bring out contrast and structure. Metal leafing forms the background, serving as an informal halo with the canvas shape. This portrait references Byzantine icon paintings of saints and martyrs. The painting is created on convex curved canvas and wraps around the edges to emphasize depth.
