Animal: Gorilla, Material: Jet
This offering is sold.
Crucial in spreading biodiversity, powerfully intelligent gorillas wander large territories, depositing seeds from the fruits and plants they eat. Herbert Halate's incredible great ape with turquoise inlaid eyes has been carved from jet, which is actually fossilized coal. Light etching serves as lovely fur detail. Signed by the artist along with a wonderful incised Kokopelli or flute-playing effigy. About 4" tall, 2 1/4" wide and 2" deep.
