Beautiful sculpt.  If only people would buy things like this rather than the horns of these amazing animals...

Agreed. I had to search hard for examples of large horned rhino...they just don't exist anymore unless in captivity. Had the same issue finding current pictures of large tusked elephants for my "Ancient One" sculpt.

It's sad that the most beautiful of these animals are already lost...  It's a dream of mine to go on safari and see some of these guys where they belong!

It's what the genes for them are now, I've heard. The smallest tusked/horned males gets the girl as the others are gone. Even if we did not hunt them now, there still wouldn't be any huge horns out there :c

Awesome sculpture by the way, and quite a beautiful photo to portray it :heart:

Thank you, and I agree with you. Lets hope some big "Tuskers" in the more protected parks breed their brains out.

It looks a lot like Elasmotherium with that horn.

White or Black Rhino? I think the Black is more attractive but the White Rhino is just a beast and so unique looking.

I like them both.  Each species of rhino is interesting in their own way. Combination of strength and some vulnerability, perfection of form and  grotesqueness.

The sheen to the rhino adds such a neat effect. Very nice work on the detailing as well!

With the clay being to light in color, I was having trouble catching the detail in the face. I had to do some funky lamp work to get the shot. I thought for sure people would scoff at this shot but it caught the detail I wanted.
