A Dodo Teaser

I have begun a custom dodo bird jester. I am thrilled by this piece as it encompasses several subjects that I just love including birds and extinct animals. I have an intense passion for birds of any kind. Ask my family, they're tired of it already! I am especially interested in birds brought to extinction by the hand of man. This includes the Carolina Parrot, the Passenger Pigeon and our famous Dodo. I recently learned that after it was discovered the dodo became extinct within eighty years. It is not clear what it looked like as all that is available are skeletons and a few heads.
It will be hard to part with this when he is finished. But I will. Stay tuned for completed images next week.
