British artist John Dyer has completed a remarkable and heart-breaking project - painting the last two surviving northern white rhinos.

John, who is from Cornwall and acts as an artist in residence at the Eden Project, travelled to Kenya at the end of February until the beginning of March 2023 to paint the majestic creatures.
The trip came almost exactly five years after Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino, died in March 2018.
