"As if God had made the innocency of so poor a creature to become such an admirable instrument for the sustention of man."
[Capitaine Richard Whitbourne, 1740 ]
In 1865, Lewis Caroll released 'Alice's Adventures in the Wonderland' where the character 'Dodo' appeared in chapters 2 and 3. Ever since its rise to fame, the sui generis bird has never been the same. It was said that the Dodo was a symbol of extinction, ending and conclusion.
