White Rhinoceros Group

I had no knowledge of casting such an intricate flower so sent specimens in formalin. I fear they will be valueless; This is a bit to dark; No mould was taken of this leaf but this is an exact copy; Leaf specimen of tree; Leaf specimen of tree; Both moulds were taken of leaves from this tree; Color sketches for White Rhino Group by Christensen; received 9/14/36.
