'Mountain Gorilla'

This small ( 8"x10" ) bronze is number 1 My bronze here was sand cast and represents number 1 of an edition of 12. I designed the work based upon live gorilla and for the purpose of raising funds for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund which actively manages protection of the endangered Mountain Gorilla from poachers and the wildlife trade internationally. Gorilla beringei beringei was first discovered in 1902. There are three know sub-species of Mountain Gorilla but all are currently under pressure of human predation and poaching which has place these magnificent creatures in the position of potential extinction. We can make works of art but no art can be compared in amazing beauty to living creatures!
