May 1st the last rhino in mozambique was poached. I found this out when I googled rhinoceros as Jeff Crouch suggested rhino poaching to follow the recent film HELPact about human extinction. But I decided to go forward with prints for now, the crisis imminent... Mrs. Sawadogo is the fourth of six prints from Limpopo Club, they are here, with two more prints coming in the next few days.... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.500536263370263.1073741825.401742659916291&type=3
China etc... has been buying rhinoceros horn for hundreds of years from the Limpopo and Mozambique area. Recently conservation rangers, local farmers, terrorists, fully armed roving bandits and revolutionary groups have been poaching for the horn worth more than gold and platinum. With vigilantes and Kenyan locals arming themselves to protect the beast. Rhino horn demand grows with asian economies, the US bears the bulk of the actual trade....
REASONS and ?:
1. You can cultivate a crash (a rhino herd) for their horns as they grow back.
2. Mozambique is one of the world's poorest countries.
3. Rhino parties.
4. Actually that last rhino wandered over into Mozambique from someplace else because the last rhino was killed a long time ago...
5. The print Bricolage came about as I wanted to assemble these prints quickly from internet images and jeff said, yep, bricolage. He is great that way. Then when I found my first image of Mozambique, brick makers being directed by a guy in a very white shirt, I knew I had my answer to half the question why? once again I will say Mozambique is one of the world's poorest countries.
