An enormous and strong animal, the rhinoceros symbolizes vigilance and calm. Rhinos are mostly passive creatures, preferring to roam their wide-open grassy spaces in contemplative solitude. They are known for their maternal loyalty, caring and voracious protection of their young. Rhino animal symbolism reminds us to appreciate the expansive bounty we have around us.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
