Rhino and Calf

Rhino and Calf

Medium: Oil on canvas

Size: 8" x 8" x 1.50"

The Inspiration

From the Animal Series inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo with my daughter.  Returning after several to the zoo, I felt it was time to continue the animal series. The animal series is not limited to wild animals, but all those that roam the earth. 

Quick Fact

Rhino species go back 50 million years. Black rhinoceroses use a variety of sounds to convey emotion: snorts for anger, huffs for greetings and even confused squeaks. They also leave behind piles of pungent droppings to mark territory.

There are five species of rhinoceros: black, Indian, Javan, Sumatran and white. Somewhat confusingly, white rhinos aren't white and black rhinos aren't black -- all rhinos have grayish skin.  

Conservation Status

Rhino symbolism is letting you know that things are not what they seem. Rhino meaning insists that you appreciate the expansive bounty that surrounds you. In other words, this spirit animal reminds you to stop and give thanks to the countless miracles occurring in every moment of your life.
