White doves of peace appear across Salisbury after Skripal poisoning

11 May 2018


Michael Pendry installs his artwork Les Colombes in Salisbury Cathedral. The installation has inspired shops and businesses around the city to make and hang hundreds of origami doves in their windows (see our picture gallery) to symbolise “resilience, peace, and hope” two months after the chemical poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city centre (News, 16 March)
