GOING/GONE : Rhino horns are essentially comprised of Keratin a fibrous protein we produce naturally in our hair and nails. Numerous Asian countries, primarily Vietnam and China, are extracting this protein from Rhinos and transforming it into exotic faux medicinal remedies. This research project and first edition rhino lapel pins act as a reminder to the vulnerability of all animal species, plants, and minerals. They are going until they are gone.
Each First Edition Gold Plated Soft Enamel Pin is $13.00 + tax
