Subterranean †rhinoceros


A rhinoceros who dwells in the imaginary underground world of “Subterranean.” It possesses a long, muscular frame and the surface of its body is covered in moss and minerals to the level of near symbiosis.
This piece was made as an homage to the famous woodblock print of Dürer’s rhinoceros. Dürer himself had never seen such an animal and painted from his own imagination and second-hand reports, but his depiction was treated as real, despite the differences with the actual living species. I can barely contain my awe and longing at such a feat.
