Echo
Australian merino wool, glass, stone clay
18cm (7.1”)

"To survive today, other animals must endure global warming, pollution, and fewer habitats. 
More tragically, they must endure the silence of human hearts."
- A.D. Williams

This Echo is a tribute to the mountainous struggles of our threatened and endangered creatures and all that they must endure as a result of the catastrophic impact of the human race on this planet. In particular, this piece speaks to one of the most beautiful animals on our planet which remains critically endangered despite efforts on both national and international levels to stop poaching and end the illegal Rhino horn trade. 

An image of this piece will be featured in an experimental publication put together by The Nile Culture, consisting of inspiring literature and artworks aimed at advocating awareness around the rhino poaching crisis while raising funds for the rhinos and rangers on the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. 100% of the artist's proceeds from the adoption of this piece will also be donated to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. 
Stand up and speak out for those who don't have a voice.

Nicole Watt aka Mahlimae (Australia) is an internationally known self-taught mixed media sculpture artist living and creating in the wilderness of Southern Tasmania, Australia.  Her exquisitely simplistic and emotionally driven characters evolve from a world long forgotten; a world hidden in the shadows of imagination. Finding inspiration in ancient ritual and folklore, Nicole’s melancholic works take you on a compelling journey into the darkness and light of human nature, drawing you in closer to explore the stories hidden within their subtle and fragile expressions. Each piece is carefully hand sculpted using stone clay, gathered natural materials and tattered hand-dyed textiles. The final works are pulled together by a common theme of possibility, a longing for connection, and an aim to intrigue.
