This rhino rests with his nose high in the air and his legs are planted on the ground with an immoveable stance. Rhinos are known for using body language to communicate. Typically rhinos never lift their heads from walking, trotting or grazing; rhinoceros keep their heads down in the same position and will only raise it when they become alarmed. They are able to maintain speeds of 25 miles per hour over short distances and they are surprisingly agile. They also use Vocalizations to communicate as well. This bronze sculpture depicts an alarmed rhino. His ears are up right and forward on the alert of any strange noises and his head high in the air checking out his surrounding and ready to charge at any moment. This bronze portrays great lifelike qualities such as the proportions right down to the elongated head and the horns, one horn in front and a shorter one behind. The skin is thick and prominently folded on the front of the shoulders and on the upper part of the hind limbs. His massive feet sports 3 toes on each and has great detail. This bronze sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" ensuring quality of detail. This bronze sculpture has a special hand painted multi gold and brown color patina. Mounted upon a Brown marble base and is signed by Artist Milo.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
