'Gentle mood – southern white rhino'
Coloured charcoal engraving, and drawing on board
90 x 53cm
To my mind the southern white rhino is a bit like a moo cow....with a similar disposition much of the time. But.... put a baby into the picture with a mother rhino and you have a very different demeanour. You give her cause to think baby is in danger and watch her go from gentle moo cow to angry 2 tonne mountain in the blink of an eye. And if you think they can't turn or run quickly you have never seen an angry rhino! You may be better off staying in your car in the first place....or have an easy tree to climb very handy!
