Superb Rhinoceros woodcarving. (Anglo-Indian?)
Absolute one of the finest carvings I have in my collection is this carving of a rhino. It's in perfect condition and the anatomical details are just amazing. Carved out of one piece of hardwood it must have taken the carver several weeks to finish. Everything is as naturalistic as can be. The skin does not only look like skin it also feels like skin. This Rhino is made in either India or Shrilanka. It's 20th century. The base is a later addition and made by yours thruly to prevent the rhino from falling and getting damaged. There're no broken and or glued parts. Garanteed undamaged condition. Dimensions of the rhino are appr. 11"4 x 8"2 4" or 29 x 21 x 10 cm. without the base. No artist or carver signature found. It's a heavy figurine and often thought of as being a bronze because of the colour and patin. Additional pictures on request.
