This rhino is named after Louis Comfort Tiffany the stained glass designer. ‘Louis’ has been inspired by the habitat of the Sumatran rhino – tropical rainforests and the art deco stained glass design of Tiffany lamps. He blends from colourful ‘glass’ foliage to red/grey tones of the rhino’s coat. The design, painted to look like glass, represents the fragility of the rhino’s existence.
