The artist started using this style because he wanted to see inside shapes. At the same time, for him, the ribbons mean connection. The shape is easily recognisable as a rhino wrapped in ribbons, but you can see inside the rhino and right through the rhino, so there is a sort of void inside this animal. It’s a rhino shape formed by the ribbons but there is no rhino.
