Sculpture description:
Sudan is the last male northern white rhino in existence, the world’s rarest large mammal. Camilla spent 4 months in Kenya sculpting Sudan from life. Fascinated by the symbiotic relationship she observed between Sudan and many other small animals, she decided to include an oxpecker who she often saw with Sudan: “The flighting bird highlights the impact of extinction of a mega herbivore on a larger ecosystem and symbolizes the ‘soul’s’ departure, given that the elderly Sudan (and potentially his species’) days are numbered.” Her aim is to preserve the memory of this iconic animal, in bronze, least we forget, and to draw attention to the northern white rhino’s plight. The bronze was also conceived to raise funds for rhinos with $4000 being raised so far for the purchase of laboratory equipment needed in an attempt to save the species from extinction through IVF. There are no northern white rhinos left in their war torn home ranges in the wild, having been poached for their horn, which is prized in the east as a traditional Chinese medicine and worth more per kg than gold. Ironically the horn is only keratin, like our nails, and has no proven medicinal value. Sudan was captured from the wild age 2, in 1975, and taken to safety at the Dvur Kralove Zoo, Czech Republic. Then in 2009, he and three others were moved to The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya, where it was hoped that the climate and rich grasslands would provide favourable breeding conditions but sadly it was in vain, which is why vets are now urgently pursuing IVF and stem cell methods.

Customer comment on 'Red Kite (Steel Bird of Prey life size garden sculptures)' by Ramsay Dick
Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
