Once upon a time, 700 BC, when reality was still blurred with beliefs 🏞️, a mysterious archaic jade stone was shaped like a 🦏 rhino by a Chinese artist.
The legend says: each thunderstorm ⚡ ever hitting the ground symbolises that a rhino had just died.☠️
Based on that idea, I designed this piece commissioned by Sotheby's for its auction in Hong Kong 🇨🇳 last March.
(Yes, there used to be rhinos in China, before humans hunted then all, and we know this thanks to the art's vestiges.) ➡️ Massive thank you to all the team!
