Rhino Sculpture Name:
Ikechi - African for 'God's strength'
Our wish was for a design that every student in our school could be part of. Every class, K-6, were involved in researching and learning about endangered animals, and in particular the rhino's. Each student then chose their favourite endangered animal to illustrate. Each illustration was drawn onto a postage stamp outline. The postage stamp design was developed from the idea that the rhino sculpture would travel from place to place on its stampede, just like a parcel or a letter. All of the postage stamp designs were then collaged to cover the rhino statue.
