Painting of the extinct Dodo bird. He stands against an ombre background of warm earth tones. Metallic gold is intermixed in the shading of his face and detailed scaly legs. A thin gold halo encircles his head, and the edges of the canvas are also finished in gold. The scientific classification "Raphus cucullatus" is painted in the lower left.
This piece is part of my series of stylized and embellished bird portraits, which investigate the concept of veneration and encourage the viewer to contemplate the value we place on individual animal lives.
