INDIAN RHINOCEROS "ALBRECHT" - JUVENILE Bronze, 5,6 inches, 14 cm, edition 49



To remember the first captive breeding of this species at Tiergarten Nürnberg!

ALBRECHT was born on 8. November 1999. Since September 2001 he is living at the Zoo of Lisieux, in northern France.

In cooperation with the former director of Tiergarten Nürnberg, Dr. Peter Mühling and his stuff we first have designed a plastilina clay model and a detailed wax model then. The finished wax model was finally casted in bronze.  

After chasing and patination the bronze sculpture represents ALBRECHT at the age of just a few weeks.
