INDOMITABLE (RHINO)

Image Size: 5.5" x 3.5" x 9.75" ()

Characterized by its large size, with all of the species able to reach one ton or more in weight, the rhinoceros family has become a powerful symbol for wildlife conception. Misconceptions about the animal's horn as a powerful aphrodisiac have contributed to a massive decline in their numbers in the twentieth century. Three of the five species the Javan, Sumatran, and Black rhinos are critically endangered, with fewer than 2,700 individuals remaining in the wild. "The noble rhino was a great subject for me to sculpt," Wyland says. "It's unique size and form inspired this minimalist interpretation of one of the planet's most unique species."
