Ancient Greeks are known to have destroyed the city of Troy by using a fatal gift a hollow wooden horse in which a group of warriors had concealed themselves. The artist vividly conveys the idea of the destructive gift, creating the image of mighty rhinoceros an embodiment of wild force. The beast appears before us as killing rhinomachine clad in armor, being forged by Greek armorers on a secret range. The flaming fire of forges is raging inside the monster, splashing out into the night from his eyes and nostrils. At the same time, vast expanse of savanna reminds us of more peaceful, gigantic rhinoceroses that had been grazing there in prehistoric times alongside the mastodons elephantlike creatures with four tusks, and many other amazing animals.
