The dodo bird used to be the epitome of animal species which disappeared because of human interactions, treasured in Natural Museum for its rarity.

It now stands as the symbol of what is happening to our world and how things used to be. In the last 20 years, 500 land animal species were found to be on the brink of extinction and humanity wiped out 60% of animal species since the 70s.

A white sheet of paper was used for this origami in order to symbolise the rarity and mythic aspect of this long gone animal.
