Rhinotopia Beginnings

Written by Sarah Soward

Rhinotopia Beginnings is a new art book by Sarah Soward created to inspire personal connections to the rhino and encourage people to admire and protect them.

The book is a collection of the first thirty-eight oil paintings in Sarah Soward’s Rhinotopia series that equate the rhino to the sacred. The paintings work with archetypes from around the world in the form of deities, powers, and forces of nature. The book presents the paintings with art analysis and context to deepen the reader’s connection to the art and, more importantly, to the rhino.
