Katharine Lane Weems's Rhinoceros Reproductions


Bronx Zoo, Bronx, NY & School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA



Katharine Lane Weems created twin heroic-size rhinoceros sculptures for the entryway of the Bio Labs Building at Harvard University as well as graphic designs of African animals that are carved into the terracotta facade. During the 1980s, Skylight Studios restored all of Weems’s original plaster models for the rhinos and created two bronze copies that are installed at the Zoo Center at the Bronx Zoo and one resin copy which stands in front of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
