The saying dead as a dodo gave me the idea to produce one; it was far more work than I thought after working on the standing and walking dodos. The head is remodelled from the open mouth dodo mould and cast giving the bird a half closed eye with a slightly open mouth.
The feet were cast in silicone from the main feet moulds, I have then repositioned, moulded, cast remodelled then moulded again then cast with one closed to hang the bird from and the other open to hang loose.
This is the most powerful of all the dodos I have made, so many people have made a live re-creation but to see the dodo hanging dead does make you think the damage man has done to the world.
