Orangutan bust by Matt Buckley - from the EDGE contemporary sculpture collection. Known as the 'gardeners of the forest' Orangutans are the world's largest tree climbing animals - their ape-like shape and shaggy reddish fur makes them instantly recognisable. Orangutans live in the forests of Indonesia and Malaysia, however they are under threat due to the deforestation of these areas - the WWF is trying to counter this with a number of conservation programmes. Matt Buckley's superb sculpture has captured the piercing eyes and soulful expression of this magnificent creature perfectly.
Cold cast marble resin, hand finished and painted.
41.3 cm high, 36.0 cm long, 29.5 cm deep (16.2 x 14.2 x 11.6 inches)
