Collection: Dodo - the extinct flightless bird from Mauritius
The dodo is one of the most famous extinct animals. This flightless bird lived on the remote island of Mauritius and its nearby islets. Its story of greed and carelessness is the stuff of many a sad and somber tale. But it is also a perfect example of the fact that the extinction of species is not something that happens in some far-off and distant future – it is part of everyday life.
I have created a collection of Dodo artworks to keep this example alive, to remember its sad story, to celebrate its beauty as it has been passed down through history and to keep the Dodo - at least in our hearts - alive .
