New Project - Rhino Outreach, October 2014!

Posted on facebook on Wednesday, 29 January 2014

“Very exited! We went to a location in Atlantis this morning where we would like to assist with planting of a vegetable garden and teach the ladies to do needlework. They are already running a soup kitchen from there. Looking for sponsors to come on board with plants, seeds, compost, layout of vegetable garden material to do sewing etc. They have the sewing machines which were donated and the people are keen to get going! We can help with training...Anyone who can assist with left over material(for sewing) and who are willing to help them to design and layout their veggy garden, please inbox me. Maybe you have a contact at a Nursery who would be willing to donate seeds, small plants and expertise?!These people feed many school children/and the aged in Atlantis and are willing to work to make a difference in their community.They just need a bit of help and support.(My organization: "I will be your voice" will be taking this on as one of its 2014 projects)”

The sculptures are created by a famous Zimbabwean artist named Wellington. The wood he uses is from large indigenous Zimbabwean ironwood and ebony trees, that have died from old age.

The sculptures take approximately one year to create! They are carved and then left in the sun and the rain for a period of time and then carved again to be left in the sun and the rain. This process is repeated 6 times until the final carving stage, which PERFECTS the finer details and brings life and character to each piece. The finishing touches are performed with fine tools such as miniature grinders and dentist drills. The masterpieces are Profoundly immaculate and alive.

“South Africa’s Bleeding Gold” by Betsie Morris. Mixed media / oil on stretch canvas - 120mm x 90mm

I normally paint happy paintings, but as this is a subject close to my heart I felt compelled to express my sadness with this situation.

The idea behind the painting was to show the pain of the calves after losing their mothers. A close look at the painting will show some happy, and some sad calves. I read that in some instances even the feet are cut off for the toe nails, hence the feet missing on the painting.

Whilst it is gruesome, maybe people need to see it in order to realise how sad the situation really is.

Michele Batchelder Biography:
Born in 1958 in Namibia.
I have painted since the age of 5 when my father bought me my first set of oil paints. He was my first inspiration and encouraged me to draw from the age of three. At the age of fifteen I undertook a three year art course which I completed in 1976.
Through my life I have been inspired by many different things, and gone through many changes in my work. I have always been inspired by not only what I see, but by what I hear, touch or feel about things. My work is colourful, tactile and thought provoking. I believe that a painting should be something which encourages conversation, not just a pretty picture on one's wall. I like to compose paintings which are appealing to the eye and the soul.
A lot of my paintings are inspired by the sky and sea. My message would be, I think, 'look how vast and powerful the creator is and how insignificant living beings are on this diverse, interesting earth of ours' ........!

I am thankful for the talent and ability I was given, and am grateful for every sale I have made. It is always an honour to have art enthusiasts and collectors from all corners of the world choose one of my paintings to hang in their private space. I hope that you will enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed doing each brush stroke on each painting.

Iain Buchanan - Rhino Canvas



In 2012, Santa Maria Novella celebrated the 400th anniversary of the founding.

The last bottle of Ottone will be auctioned off on the 8th June at the Mount Nelson for the Rhino foundation.

Short Description of the Santa Maria Novella Brand

Italy’s world famous Perfumery Santa Maria Novella launched it’s first store in Africa, in Cape Town November 2012.
Now South Africans will be enveloped in a cloud of fragrant history that dates back to the 13th century.

The oldest pharmacies in the world, Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella  was established by Dominican monks shortly after their arrival in Florence in the 1221 where they cultivated herbs for medications, balms and ointments. 
Trading to the public for 400 years, the Florentine store purveys fine scented products which are to this day still made or finished by hand in Florence using the herbs and natural lipids in those original recipes. Nothing is tested on animals. Owned by the same family for four generations, Santa Maria Novella’s scents have been worn by royalty and for the first time on the African continent, women will be able to dab behind their ears the cologne created for Catherine de’ Medici, wife of King Henry II of France. Perfumes, essences and triple extracts range from the sweet, fruity and floral, to fresh and rejuvenating. Soaps, lotions, body rubs, creams, candles, incense, shampoos and conditioners and the company’s signature pot-pourri - a mixture of herbs and flowers from the Tuscan hills macerated in terracotta jars from Montelupo – form just part of a luxurious range available from the flagship store in the Cape Quarter.


Santa Maria Novella - Hamper

Including a gift box, bottle of the "Aqua della Regina" ('Water for the Queen') fragrance, this was the first fragrance ever made and was made for Catherine de Medici

Simply Bee - Hamper

At Simply Bee, we believe that natural ingredients must come from a renewable and plentiful resource found in nature, yet with absolutely no petroleum compounds. Ingredients are only a part of what makes a product natural. Equally important is how those ingredients are processed. Simply Bee keeps to a minimum any processing, if at all, including distillation, condensation, extraction, steaming, pressure cooking and hydrolysis. Our goal is to maximize purity without negative effects on the ingredients. We only use our own Fynbos honey, propolis and beeswax that is from Hopefield surrounded areas and far away from any crop spraying.  We mix our Fynbos honey, propolis and beeswax with local essential oil and carrier oils.
