Rhino Sculpture Name:

Olive Muriel Pink

Rhino Inspiration:

Drawing inspiration from OLIVE Muriel Pink the Australian botanical illustrator, anthropologist, gardener, and activist for aboriginal rights we wanted to give our rhino a sense of identity as well as acknowledging the rhino. Habitat is of great importance to the rhinos so Olive was firstly decorated with Australian earth colours and dot designs as a tribute to aboriginal artwork and acknowledgement of the importance of the land to us. As rhinos are known as a charismatic mega herbivore we thought it was fitting for Olive  to be decorated with flowers from an Australian garden. The flowers painted in the style of a botanist, are painted with great care and affection to reflect the great love we have for the plight of the wild rhino.
