This unique white rhino art is a digital mosaic where each “tile” or “stone” (tessera) appears to have a 3D look. This original artwork image appears to be a high quality photo of a complex and detailed mosaic.

This artwork was an experiment for me, as I wanted to create a digital mosaic and use the various attributes of the tiles to highlight the three main surfaces and to give a 3D impression within the art not typically seen in mosaics.

The arrangement of the apparent “stones” is such that they follow the contours of the resting rhino and lend a physical presence and strength to its appearance. As opposed to the other surfaces, the rhino has more dimension.

The tiles that represent the sunlit dappled ground are longer & mainly horizontal to reinforce the flatness of the earth and display some of its small undulations.

The background is a mass of multi-colored darks, mainly deep greenish hues, that represent the tangled vegetation that lie beyond this glorious animal.

Each section of the art was therefore created a little differently, to give each its own look. A small highlight on the tiles comes from the upper left of the image, similar to the direction from which the sunlight strikes the rhinocerous. The 3D look of each tile is more apparent in a larger version of the artwork.

I would call the experiment a definite success!
