Style
Georgian - Georgian style is the name given in most English-speaking countries to the set of styles current between 1720 and 1840. It is eponymous for the first four British monarchs of the House of Hanover—George I of Great Britain, George II of Great Britain, George III of the United Kingdom, and George IV of the United Kingdom—who reigned in continuous succession from August 1714 to June 1830.

Theme
Pigeon - After the WWII the pigeon became the symbol for peace. The pigeon, sometimes represented with an olive branch, is an early Christian symbol with the meaning of 'Rest in Peace'. It was also the symbol for the Holy Ghost. The pigeon was the attribute of many saints. A pair of pigeons is known as the symbol of love and harmony. In China and Japan a pair of pigeons is an emblem of long life and faith.
