Forevermark partners with Tusk to support Africa's rhinos
October 15, 2018: Forevermark, the luxury diamond brand, is supporting the Tusk Rhino Trail, a central London wide art installation run by UK charity, Tusk, that aims to raise awareness of the critical threat facing the black and white rhino population in sub-Saharan Africa.
To celebrate this magnificent animal and raise vital funds to ensure the continued conservation of rhinos and their fellow African species, the Tusk Rhino Trail is supported by an invited list of internationally respected artists and designers who have specially designed, decorated and embellished 21 rhino sculptures.
Dave White, who created his rhino design for Forevermark, has titled it Fragile. He says, “Reflecting a realistic vision from a distance, with an abstraction of expressive paint marks upon closer viewing, my work represents the fragile balance of order and chaos in the natural world and the impact that we are having on our environment. I hope that by inspiring generations of all ages with this project, it will be one small positive step to support Tusk in their vital work protecting endangered species.”
The sculptures were displayed at a selection of iconic London sites including New Bond Street, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Carnaby Street and concluded with the celebration of World Rhino Day on September 22. It was followed by an auction in aid of Tusk on October 9 at an event hosted by leading London auction house, Christies.
