The Last Menagerie Commemorative Plates and Prints

~There is an extinct totem animal in each of us~

Last year marked the 100th anniversary of the last year of the last Passenger Pigeon, known by the name Martha. The centennial marker inspired The Last Menagerie, a line of plates designed to commemorate, educate, and remind ourselves about that which is lost but not forgotten. The commemorative plate is such an odd and beautiful object. As it preserves and frames a fleeting moment or event–it also gives dimensional life to a wall. The Last Menagerie is a collection of six commemorative plates each featuring a different extinct animal:
