Gillie and Marc Art
Title: 'The Wonderful Three'
Materials: Bronze with Coloured Patinas
Dimension: H= 60cm x L= 17cm x W= 60cm
This sculpture is a smaller version of the monumental sculpture, The Last Three. The aim was to inspire, educate, and mobilize a global community to raise their voices, and affect real change against rhino horn sales. From a population of 40,000 there were only three northern white rhinos left when this sculpture was made, making them the rarest animal on earth. Their names were Sudan, Najin and Fatu. The Last Three will create a legacy of their lives to save future rhino species from extinction. Rhino horns are worth more than their weight in gold, so rhinos are under constant threat from armies of poachers. Gillie and Marc’s sculpture will be used to raise critical funds needed to protect the northern white rhinos of which there are now only two left (Najin and Fatu), and to encourage participation in a petition for approaching Chinese and Vietnamese governments about eliminating the demand for rhino horns.
