About the art: The rhino in the zebra’s eye demonstrates the beauty and need to preserve this highly threatened species due to poaching. The stripes of the zebra represent the black and white rhino species. The rusted corrugated tin represents poverty in Africa, which drives the madness of poaching. My hope is that people observe the piece and are intrigued and feel compelled to explore the meaning behind “Perspective.”
This stunningly detailed work of art was created in acrylic by South African born Mark Middleton. It placed in the top 5 ArtPrize competition of 2014.
