"How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol? How about the pillow? It has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn't have that dangerous beak." -Jack Handey

The turtle dove in love was often painted paired and kissing, as in Venus and Cupid with Doves, by Boucher (18 century), in the rolling wave curves of rococo, and earlier in a more stout, upright, and direct style by Domenico Zampieri, (Domenichino) (17 century).* While the dove became a symbol of the bird of love the pigeon, an more precisely the carrier pigeon became a symbol of a useful tool for man, in his role as a traveler that always returns home even if hundreds of miles away.
Pigeons were used early in the East by the Japanese and the Turks (1600) to carry messages and provided their service as postal delivery during the siege of Paris in 1870, by Reuters news, by banker Rothschild, by the United Kingdom's RAF (Royal Air Force), and are still used in the 1960's by some Japanese newspapers.
The pigeon carried the olive branch, a symbol that has its own entire history, became mated with that of the pigeon or dove carrying the olive branch in it's mouth as a sign of peace.
