The Dodo and Mauritius Island, Imaginary Encounters by Harri Kallio, 2001-2004

An artist who devotes his precious time creating faux dodos (dodi? o_O) to make us believe that they still exist and frolic in the beautiful landscape of the Mauritius Island surely deserves my attention and blog space.

And for those who may think "God, what a waste of time!", well, how long do you think it'll take us greedy human bastards to eliminate hundreds and thousands of other marvellous species that future generations will never ever get to see?

Keeping our planet's bio-diversic heritage alive in an artistic form is a very honorable task, I believe.

And dodos rock.
