When I start working on a new painting I always do some research about the animal I am going to paint. In this case it was not a pleasant reading... These rhino's are wanted for their horn and are been killed by poachers in a horrific way. I was shocked how cruel people can be. And at the other hand there are also a lot of people who are trying to protect these beautiful animals. This is why I have decided to donate 50% of the income of this painting to one of the organisations who helps rhinos to survive.
It is going to be The Rhino Orphanage an organisation in South Africa that helps little Rhino's who has no mum anymore to look after them. I saw a documentary made by Floortje Dessing about this beautiful organisation some time ago on Dutch television. It touched me how these people take care of these little rhinos and protect them from poachers.
This painting "Protect them" is not available anymore.
The rhino has found a home with a lovely couple that has a special bond with rhino's and The Rhino Orphanage. Both have worked with these beautiful animals. I could not wish for a better place for this painting.
It is nice to know that with this rhino, other rhino's can be helped
I did donate €1500 to the Rhino Orphanage
Do you want to know more about this beautiful organisation?
