Sculpture description:
This sculpture was inspired by Albrecht Durer`s famous woodcut of 1515CE, almost 500 years ago, of the first living rhinoceros to arrive on European shores. We now live in an age where the last rhinos may be walking the earth.
Artist's comments:
I was intrigued by the fact that Durer didn`t ever see a rhinoceros, but had to make up his woodcut from hearsay. Durer gave the rhino hard plates, so it was probably based on an Indian rhino. In his woodcut, Durer also gave the creature a small horn on the back of its neck.

In response, I wanted to pay homage to this wonderful woodcut by translating it into three dimensions.

I modeled the rhino in clay, moulded it and then cast it into bronze resin (cold cast bronze).
