Medicine for the Forest shows that the rhino is necessary for a healthy ecosystem. In this painting, a rhino is transporting a sapling into a dead part of a forest. The tiny tree, complete with roots encased in just enough soil, got lifted off the forest floor while the rhino was rooting the ground with his horns.
The painting is inspired by Ossain and is named after a song by Daughter.
