World-renowned artists Gillie and Marc auction-off their lives’ work to save rhinos!
There are only 3 Northern White Rhino’s left on planet earth, and their horns are worth more than gold, ivory, diamonds, or cocaine. We’ve poached these marvellous creatures to extinction, and most people don’t even know about it…
Lot 50: Flying rhino (bronze with blue patina)
Lot 269: Rhino Suspension (Bronze with bronze patina)
Lot 288: Flying rhino (bronze with light bronze patina)
Lot 236: Buried rhino (bronze with bronze patina)

The making of the largest Rhino Sculpture in the world
But there’s still hope, and it comes in the form of Gillie and Marc’s Art with Heart Auction!
Artists Gillie and Marc refuse to see the the last 3 Northern White Rhinos go in vain, and have dedicated their lives to creating the biggest awareness campaign in history, and stopping the misled demand for rhino horns (which are made from the same material as human fingernails).
The artists will be selling over 1000 square meters of artworks they’ve been lovingly creating over the past 20-years in the most incredible art auction the world has ever seen!
Gillie and Marc need to auction off each piece of art they’ve ever made in order to finish the BIGGEST rhino sculpture in history, and educate the public about rhino conservation.
“We desperately need help from the public, along with our fans and followers around the world, to make this monumental sculpture and save rhinos from extinction,” stated Gillie, “Everything we have ever done, our most precious pieces of art that we’ve poured hours of love and hard work into, are being dedicated to this critical cause.”
To which Marc added, “We have made a commitment to save rhinos, and using our art is the best way we know how to.”
“We’re so humbled that our art is collected around the world for high-prices. We’re also fortunate enough to have 5 monumental public works already installed in New York City, but the rhino sculpture is by far the most considerable we’ve undertaken,” Gillie said, looking at Marc.
“We want to let everything in the gallery go to support it, which means our artworks are going to be available at the auction for the most unbelievable deals.
