Javan Rhino, 2018. 4 ½” in. Diameter.
Javan Rhinoceros are the most threatened rhinoceros species of the five. There are as few as 35-58 in the wild left. The decrease in their population is mainly due to deforestation and poaching for their horns for trade.
What used to be their land coverage has now reduced to a National Park in the tip of Java, so that they may be protected against poachers.
Javan Rhinos are often confused with the Indian Rhino, their larger counterpart, and does not thrive well in captivity, making efforts of conservation much harder and more complicated.
A brand new direction where thrown objects and sculptures are revolved around endangered animals or animal issues that is worth the attention.
