Unveiling of the biggest rhino sculpture in Melbourne

On 2nd February 2019, the Melbourne public will be bewildered by the unveiling of The Wonderful Two, which will offer the creation of lifelong memories through a unique and interactive sculpture experience. The bronze immortalization of Najin and Fatu by Australian eco-warrior artists Gillie and Marc will be instrumental in bringing hope to the survival of rhinos!

The sculpture will be proudly launched at Republica, St. Kilda Sea Baths, right on the St Kilda foreshore, on Melbourne’s second most visited destination, St Kilda Beach.

This is an incredible location that will give visibility and create awareness for this very important cause, so Gillie and Marc are extremely grateful for this opportunity.

The sculpture is set to be aligned with the hashtag #LoveTheLast. Visitors will be asked to take a photo with the artwork and share it with the hashtag, jump starting efforts to spread critical awareness. Signage will also educate, and direct the public to a donations page set-up for Najin and Fatu, so they can live out their much-deserved final days in peace at Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
