Raphus cucullatus umbrellicus

Well, ever since watching Mary Poppins I wanted one of those parrot umbrellas.
Having since acquired a taste for all things extinct and flightless, I decided to make my very own Dodo umbrella. It's actually quite comfy to hold, once you find your preferred hand position and I might go and show it to the guys at the Horniman museum at the end of our street. They have a reconstructed dodo there and maybe I can sell these through their shop...
I let you all know when I go into production.
Until then, let's hope it stays dry...

Hello Michael! This was one of my best christmas presents I ever got. I´am proud to be the owner of one of this unique and almost beautifull umbrellors. I love it and I don´t like him to become wet ;-) Greetings from germany

Hello...Elliot Cowan directed me to your blog, and to this post. Is it possible to buy one of the dodo umbrellas at this late date? I recently lost my beautifully carved parrot-handled umbrella and would like to replace it. Thank you if so, and thank you anyway, if not so easy to do so.
