Pigeon Post




My last (I think!) mail art for Paul Smith
This time I wanted to make a textile parcel, because when we were travelling around India over 20 years ago, we sent some parcels home and they were sewn into a calico wrap with wax seals and they looked magical. 
So I have made another pigeon this time in calico, I wanted to include some pigeon food, so I made pigeon eggs from rice paper and stuffed them with corn. I had to pack the pigeon with bubble wrap to try protect the eggs.
