'Sentient Being' is the acknowledgment of an animal’s uniqueness and the negative impact on the planet's ecology should we ignore the Rhino's place in it. The Chakras are powerful visual reminders of the physical aggregates which build life, and represent the tangible and emotional loss to society our moral negligence will cause.</p><h2 lang="en-US">Artist statement:</h2><p lang="en-US">Mr &amp; Mrs Brown are contemporary artists living in Central West NSW.
