Rhino Sculpture Location
80 Pyrmont Street, Pyrmont, NSW 2009
My design is inspired by the delicateness of the rhino species, and a number of animals sharing the same vulnerability. I decided to represent this fragility in styling my rhino like a delicate piece of chinaware, creating a pattern that consists of animals and flora related to the origin of the rhino, depicted in the same manner as the artwork typically found on chinaware - teapots, teacups, etc.
