About "Rhino At Sun Rise"

This work is unframed (but can be supplied either framed or unframed).

The Rhinoceros is a large, primitive looking mammal that in fact dates from the Miocene era millions of years ago. In recent decades rhinos have been relentlessly hunted to the point of near extinction. Since 1979 the world rhino population has declined by 90 percent, with five species remaining in the world today, all of which are endangered.

The white or square-lipped rhino is one of two rhino species in Africa. It in turn occurs as two subspecies, the southern and the protected on farms and reserves, enabling it to increase enough to be reintroduced. the northern white rhino has recovered in Democratic Republic of Congo from about 15 in 1984 to about 30 in the late 1990s. This population has been threatened by political conflict and instability.

Name: Black Rhinoceros-Diceros bicornis/White Rhino-Ceratotherium simum.

The White Rhino: The white rhino's name derives from the Dutch "weit" meaning wide, actually grey, has a pronounced hump on the neck and a long face.

The Black Rhino: The black, or hooked-lipped rhino, along with all other rhino species, is an odd-toed ungulate (three toes on each foot). It has a thick, hairless, grey hide. Both the black and white rhino have two horns, the longer of which sits at the front of the nose.

Size: The rhinoceros stands about 60 inches at the shoulder. Weight: Black Rhino: 1 to 1 1/2 tons. White Rhino: over 2 tons.

About Frans

Frans Matlala

I come from a small village called Ga-Molapo in Limpopo,South Africa. I'm from a poor family background and as a child I wanted all the beautiful toys that I saw in the magazines. Unfortunately we did not have the means to afford such luxuries and I had to use whatever resources I had available to make my own toys. I would use mud,wire,tin or carton (basically anything I could find.) I started selling some of the toys to the kids in my village and tried to generate a small income for myself. My passion for art started at an early age and it was only when I went to High School that my true talent emerged.My teacher encouraged me to study fine art after I finished High School I did fine art at the Wits Technikon but because of financial difficulty I was not able to reach that dream. I still have much to learn,art is not a hobby like some might think.My art reflects my heritage,spirit,lifestyle and my soul.
