This Great Big Rhino miniature is called Stella and was created by artist Sue Misselbrook.
This design is the result of a staff competition at Paignton Zoo. The inspiration came from the night sky, and in particular the night sky in Zimbabwe which is so clear you can see a truly amazing number of stars; it’s an incredible sight. The design features constellations which represent animals such as the hare, lion, peacock, and includes mythical beasts such as the unicorn which stands behind the Indian rhino. The background to the constellations includes the Milky Way and the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
