The Doves Elect a Hawk Their King

Created by Edmond Amateis in 1940, this medal tells the story of 2 Aesop’s fables: A dog and his shadow, and the Kite, Hawk and Pigeons. One side of the medal shows the dog holding a treat and looking down at his reflection in the water, trying to figure out who is the dog looking up at him. The second shows a hawk standing on top of the kite as he is trying to protect the pigeons. The fables were selected for their enduring timeliness, leaving the interpretation to the beholder.
