“The more you learn about the dignity of the gorilla, the more you want to avoid people.”
– Dian Fossey
Mountain gorillas, who live in the Virunga mountains of East central Africa, are the most endangered of the three sub-species, and are seriously threatened by the possibility of extinction. There are less than 790 of them left in the world, and they can only exist in the wild. None have survived in captivity.
Part of my Endangered Animals series, this piece is double-mounted with an inner cream and outer brown mount. It is framed with a lovely brushed copper frame.
I realise that gorillas don't fall into the 'cute and cuddly' idea of animals, (well, baby ones do...) but I love them.
