‘The Last Three’ an amazing and poignant limited edition (34/50) bronze sculpture by Gillie and Marc of the last remaining three Northern White Rhinos; Sudan, Fatu and Najin. Since creating this amazing sculpture to highlight the imminent extinction of this species, Sudan has since unfortunately died and now there are just two Female Northern White Rhinos remaining in the world. An extremely special collector’s piece.

This incredible sculpture comes with a powerful message. It was inspired by Gillie and Marc’s trip to Kenya to visit the last three northern white rhinos on earth, who humans have poached to imminent extinction. The artists have dedicated their lives to creating a legacy of these rhinos through their art, with the aims of raising critical awareness to save future species. It represents both the struggle and hope that remains, and is a smaller replica of the world’s biggest rhino sculpture that the artists installed in NYC in 2018.

Amazing photography print kindly donated by Ben Michael Wallace “There’s no experience quite like getting up close to an elephant. The feeling when they approach is difficult to describe, but by best attempt would be mixture of excitement, inadequacy, powerlessness and respect. Both you and the animal know that it could crush you so easily, as it waves its trunk gently in your direction and smells the air, yet, if you respect the elephant, the tendency is that the feeling is reciprocated. In this incidence, this bull approached my vehicle, close enough to feel the sheer power of the animal, before moving on his merry way, and browsing on the bushes in front of me.“
