Reina the Rhino Plushasian artmuseum store
An Asian Art Museum store exclusive! Based on the museum’s signature bronze rhino (lovingly nicknamed Reina), this plush toy has all of the cuddly features that make the original so endearing.
Created during the Shang dynasty (1600–1050 BCE), this rhinoceros is the most famous object in the Asian Art Museum’s collection — and among the most celebrated ancient Chinese bronzes in the world. It portrays a lively, powerful rhinoceros with a straightforward, natural charm. Inside the original bronze is a rounded cavity, which has helped scholars identify it as a vessel for use in rituals of ancestral worship in ancient China.
