A star in the animal kingdom - marvel at the rhinoceros’ beauty and take good care of them, keep the stars burning bright. The rhino will be painted with hardwearing professional prop-makers glitter paint with a special undercoat and fix.

About the artists
Patricia and Maria both have previously been involved with other art Trails having created designs for the Elephant Parade and The Barons Charter.

Speaking about their work: “We especially enjoy working on pieces that have a large audience and where people can be involved in celebrating art and the local community.”

Maria has recently worked on a Props and Art Department project with Channel 4, for John Lewis, the Elephant Parade London (‘Elephant Family’), on Dick Whittington at Salisbury Playhouse and on a large number of short films. Patricia is a practicing artist and has shown her work internationally at exhibitions and art film festivals.
