Fun fact: The passenger pigeon is celebrated for bringing awareness to saving the American Buffalo from extinction after the last of the bird's kind, Martha, passed in 1914 at the Cincinnati Zoo.
In collaboration with Haptic Lab, an innovative design studio exploring tactile senses by combining new technology with traditional craft, the Flying Martha: Artist Edition is a simple mechanical toy powered by a rubber band. To fly the ornithopter, simply wind up the bird and gently release like a paper airplane. When not in use, the Flying Martha is a charming companion displayed in your home.

The sculptural woodcut print process combines traditional woodblock printmaking onto unbleached mulberry paper and a mounting system to birch ply. Fischer's Passenger Pigeon is a 3-color block print, bringing the dimension in the flat cut out even further. Please forgive the natural wood's imperfections on the side cuts - some missing layers and chipping may occur.
