Callirrhoe is part of my Rhino Moons series. It's a subset of paintings that belong to my larger series, Wandering Stars, that focuses on portraying cosmic bodies and the entities they are named after in the guise of wildlife.

This myth comes from a moon of Jupiter. To the best of my knowledge, the moon has no atmosphere so I kept the rhino colors fairly simple and inspired by rock and ore. In the myth, some things get dramatic for Callirrhoe when she decides she absolutely must have a specific necklace and robe for her wedding. They happen to belong to someone else. This being a Greek myth, I'll let you fill in the blanks about how all that went. 

To honor the myth, the rhino is enrobed in clouds and walking on a tightrope made of a golden chain. The rhino is also somewhat golden-hued against her lovely blue sky.

Please keep fine art and prints out of direct sunlight and UV light.

Wildlife art is a language of love, hope, and determination.
