Ben's white rhino takes pride of place

Ben Eyles is an educator and artist from Jindabyne whose sculpture of a White African Rhino is attracting a great deal of attention in Sydney.

The sculpture "is a comment on the fragile nature of some of nature's most impressive beasts and how we, as a human race, have allowed such a magnificent beast to become almost extinct," according to Ben.

The sculpture is in pride of place near Lion Gate Lodge at the inaugural Artisans in the Gardens Sculpture Walk at Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens where it will remain untl October 27.

The annual event also features work by Jindabyne sculptors Todd Costa and Steve Croquett whose pieces fit beautifully with the botanical ambience and complement ceramics, jewellery, glass, textiles and sculptures by leading Australian artists.
