This project is to help the conservation of the Rhino and what better way to open peoples eyes with such a pattern!</p><h2>Artist statement:</h2><p>My work is heavily based on the human condition and the emotional state of mind that makes or breaks a happy existence.&nbsp;<br>My portraits are a reflection of ones memories and expectations, in which the concept of an intoxicating other is celebrated or hated by thematically dealing with the feeling of being torn between addiction and satisfaction - between excess and boredom.</p><h2><strong>Sculpture Details</strong></h2><p><strong>Type :&nbsp;</strong>Large (adult)</p><p><strong>Measurements</strong> : 1340mm (h) x 2250mm (l) x 800mm (w)</p><p><strong>Weight </strong>: Approximately 60Kg</p>
