Clara the Rhinoceros

Wonder, Beast, Sensation, Muse

Sold out

In 1741 a VOC ship from India arrives in the Netherlands, with a miraculous animal on board that no one in Europe has ever seen before: a young rhino named Clara. For no less than seventeen years she travelled with her owner Douwe Mout through almost every country in Europe. Wherever she is exhibited, she is a sensation; she grows into the most famous rhino in European history. Based on new research, Gijs van der Ham reconstructs her life among people and her travels, unravels her meaning and influence on the image of and knowledge about the rhino, and shows that she was not only a celebrity, but also a victim who spent her entire life in captivity.
