How the Rhinoceros got it’s Skin

How the Rhino got his Skin -1902

How the Rhino got his Skin -1902

“…there came down to the beach from the Altogether Uninhabited Interior one Rhinoceros with a horn on his nose, two piggy eyes, and few manners. In those days the Rhinoceros’s skin fitted him quite tight. There were no wrinkles in it anywhere. He looked exactly like a Noah’s Ark Rhinoceros, but of course much bigger. All the same, he had no manners then, and he has no manners now, and he never will have any manners..”

The great English author Rudyard Kipling who wrote The Jungle Book and The Man Who Would be King, also wove this whimsical and fantastical yarn of “How the Rhinoceros Got It’s Skin

This rare vintage print from the story is being offered in our online art auction on June 1st. Take a peek at the work that will be offered: RHINO ART AUCTION
