My Rhino
The name ‘My Rhino’ was selected to increase people’s connection to this beautiful animal, making the Rhino not just any rhino but their own Rhino. Based on the same concept as the Cow Parade  and Elephant Parade, My Rhino has hand decorated and painted rhinos by well-know South African artists.


My Rhino has used selective designs have been used that encapsulate the essence of Africa, Love and Emotion, such as the Rhino with words scribed on its body. The ceramic rhinos  rhinos have been sculpted by a professional sculpture, where the exact exact proportions of the rhino have been taken into consideration, from  body  to the weight of the animal, making it as close to a replica as possible.

A limited edition range has been created that will be promoted at once off events and prestigious exhibits. The My Rhino brand wishes to increase awareness globally through as many distribution channels locally and internationally, in such more people can become further aware and be able to connect to such a wonderful animal.

My Rhino has donated to the Endangered Wildlife Trust ,Kariega Foundation and Poached Rhino making this not just an awareness program but also a fund raising initiative. Retailers are also encouraged to donate further funds to a Rhino Conservation of their choice. Go to Donors under the Endangered Wildlife Trust website.  My Rhino exhibits their ceramic rhinos in Cape Town and Johannesburg on a regular basis.

Each ceramic rhino comes beautifully packaged and is easy to transport.
