Many technologies today are inspired by history, and here we have a classic example. This sculpture 'The Messenger' was created with war pigeons (that used to carry messages over enemy lines) in mind. The bird was hand carved and then molded. The idea behind The Messenger is for each person who receives it to keep it for a while, then write a note of their own, place it inside and give it away! It is a gift designed to be re-gifted. Each pigeon has a tracking number and you can follow it in an online map forever. Check it out!
