This  sculpture, which portrays a dove descending to earth with the spirit of peace, symbolized by the Madonna standing inside a tear shaped canopy, supported by a base of reclining lambs was designed by  cubist Jacques Lipchitz. It  is  in the plaza between the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Mark Taper Forum at the Los Angeles Music Center. It was dedicated in 1969.  The statue is surrounded by 280 jets that are systematically shooting water up into the air on a 14-minute cycle, installed in 1987.
