For over a decade, a creepy 13-foot tall bronze dove statue has graced the the Wolfson Campus of Miami Dade College.

Named “Violata Pax Dove” or the “Wounded Peace Dove,” the bird truly embodied its name — it was both scalped and had a torn claw. It was on loan to the college courtesy of Alabama artist Fred “Nall” Hollis.

Now, the bird has moved back home to Alabama where it’s been relocated to Troy University in Montgomery, Ala. across the street from the Rosa Parks Museum.

 “It was a sad ending to its visit,” Nall told the MDC Reporter.
