Rhino Wars

"Rhino Wars"

1650 x 2500 cm

oil on canvas

This is a spectacular large canvas with a lot of detailed line work. It deals with the current battles to conserve wild rhinos in Africa and Asia, and looks at the possibility that rhinos as a species could soon join the ranks of mythological creatures.  The George and Dragon motif occurs across Europe from Russia, to the West, and in north Africa particularly Ethiopia.  Thus it can be taken as an international symbol in this context
