Art Description

Sculpture: Ceramic, Paint on Ceramic.

He was stronger than he thought – (Candle/plant holder)

Modelled in memory of the beautiful Sudan, the last of the male White Rhinos who died in 2018, this ceramic sculpture serves as a reminder of what can be lost if we do not bring conservation issues to the forefront of our consciousness. Both practical and beautiful, this wonderful ceramic can be used as both a candle or a plant holder. Held on his back, this sculpture recognises the strength of this majestic Rhino, even with the heavy burden that he was plagued to carry, the burden of the extinction of his species. You can either light a candle in memory of Sudan, or watch your plants flourish off the strength of his back.

Seven days later, they were married in the foothills of Mount Everest

The full size outdoor sculpture of 'The Last Two' can be found at St Kilda Beach, Melbourne and depicts the last two Northern White Rhinos on the planet.
