Garry created this rhino sculpture to mimic valuable crystal to signify how precious these endangered animals are. He wanted to emphasise how precious their horns are in terms of monetary value to the lowest base of mankind’s values of greed and selfishness, and yet how precious they are to mankind’s higher values of guardianship and protection.
