Rhino Inspiration

The Wild Tribe was inspired by the geographical location of the 5 species of Rhinoceros. Rhinos predominantly live in Africa and Asia. The monotone tribal pattern, painted in acrylics, symbolises where the rhinos should be free to run wild and safe from poaching. The pattern embodies the angular form of a rhino horn, utilizing triangles throughout.
