Dodo Cast

NO MORE UNTIL 2017

** Thanks to the generosity of people and a lot of patience in moulding my Dodo's are now 95% complete. I now have a full spine, wing and tail cast taken from a real Dodo that completes it (first picture)**
The dodo was a large, flightless bird that inhabited Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. It evolved this way as it had no natural predators and had no need to fly away from danger. But then, after less than 100 years of being discovered by man it was gone, never to be seen again. This tragic story hopefully will help us to see sense and conserve our natural environment and the animals that inhabit it.

For sale here are a limited number of my exclusive dodo cast recreations.
They are made up of cast resin bones taken from several real dodo bones as well as some recreation parts and real bones from birds of a similar size. Each recreation is unique, sporting slightly different poses as well as some small missing parts to give it the effect of a real fossil that has been found in the swamps of Mauritius. Each of my dodos come presented in a high quality case with a glass surround and wooden beading. They will look great in any collection in a modern or old house or museum.
As well as the single Dodo in a case I also make complete recreations of Dodo chicks which can be sold individually or with the adult in the case.
My dodos have been personally praised by Errol Fuller, Professor Carl Jones and Dr Julian Hume - a great honour!
I am delighted to have had my dodo skeletons feature in the Great Dodo Exhibition at Kendal Museum in 2013.

Please note there is around a 3 month waiting list for one of these displays.
I will only make a limited quantity each year to keep these displays exclusive. Please email me if you require any further information or would like to purchase a dodo skeleton.
Personal collection is welcome or I will personally deliver for a small fee (free delivery available within a certain distance, please inquire)
Thank you.
