I wanted to create a rhino design with some of the Javan fabric designs, but I also wanted to include an element of hope.<br> <br>I felt that we must protect them and so have included a baby which will be painted on both sides of the rhino. I have chosen colours which will make the sculpture stand out and get attention.</p><h2>Artist statement</h2><p>Penny Lovelock is an artist/illustrator.
