'Gorilla and Baby' Prototype
 

Master Carver David Lawrence carved the 'Gorilla and Baby' in 1996. This is a prototype, made in England at Martin Perry's studios; the piece has never been released.

'Gorilla and Baby' is approximately 2.25" tall, 1.4" wide, and 1.9" deep.

A mother gorilla hovers protectively over her curious off-spring in this charming, whimsical piece.

If you look closely, you will see that she has already eliminated one danger to her child. You can see his helmet and a boot on one side, and his map of THE BLACK NILE and his binoculars on the other.
