Rhino skin is similar to a castle wall (rough and grey) and like castles rhinos are big, strong and solid. England has a lot of historical castles still standing today (with a few great ones in Devon). In this design we can playfully imagine what a castle siege was like in medieval times both inside and outside the castle walls.
