This whimsical rhinoceros was crafted by the famed jeweler and sculptor Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof, a man commonly regarded as America’s Fabergé for his playful sculptures formed from gemstones. The artist has created a charming character in this highly detail design; finely carved down to the smallest detail, his rhinoceros dons a jacket and an expression that manages to capture the distinctive personality of the creature. The artistry is also enhanced by Zadora’s inspired use of quartz, which closely mimics the color of the animal's tough hide. Altogether, Zadora brings to this carving the same degree of imagination and perfection that characterizes his oeuvre as a whole.

The Canadian-born sculptor Baron Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof is recognized as the world’s leading gemstone artist, and his international clientele includes the world’s most discerning connoisseurs.
