The dodo at the Horniman Museum inspired the “Rowland's Dodo” and “true colours” prints. This dodo was made by the famous London taxidermy company Rowland Ward and bought for the museum in 1938. Hence the reference to Rowland in the title. I was drawn to the beautiful colours of the beak and feet of this dodo. The exact colour of dodo is not known, so it varies greatly depending on who has created it. Hence the reference to “True Colours” and not always knowing an animals/birds true colours or knowing peoples “true colours”.
