Description

'THE GOLDEN RHINO', BY JAMES PERKINS


'THE GOLDEN RHINO' JAMES PERKINS A moulded bronze resin model of a head and shoulder mount of a White Rhino Approximately 100cm high, 140cm protuberance Catalogue Note: Inspired by the desire to preserve this wonderful creature, James Perkins has created a magnificent tribute for up close and accessible appreciation. Given the title 'The Golden Rhino', James eludes to the notion that the rhino horn has exceeded the value of gold. Playing perfectly on classical sculptural references and taxidermy, this scale model of a Rhino's head makes a powerful interior and environmental statement. James has given this Rhino sculpture a liquid bronze finish to represent the conservation issues of this animal, only two wild Northern White Rhino females left on the planet, whilst also creating a life like texture of the creature's distinctive skin.
