Following an enthusiastic response from the general public to the Tusk Rhino Trail displayed on the streets of London in August and September, this exciting initiative culminates in style on Tuesday, 9th October with the sale by auction of the rhinos at Christie’s Auction House.  Each stunning rhino sculpture has been donated to Tusk by well-known and highly collectable artists, including Marc Quinn, Zhang Huan, Gavin Turk and the Chapman Brothers.

Each of the twenty-one individually designed and painted rhino sculptures, along with specific works of art donated by Tracey Emin, David Shrigley and Julian Opie, will be sold to raise valuable funds to support Tusk’s ongoing rhino and broader conservation programmes across Africa.

Building upon Tusk’s longstanding relationship with Christie’s, we are delighted that the famous auction house will host the live auction on the eve of the international Illegal Wildlife Trade conference being hosted by the UK Government.

Tusk is very grateful to Christie’s and Justerini & Brooks for their generous support of the auction event.
