Large Sculpted Silverback Gorilla Head. Signed Sandra Brue. 1997. USA.
LIFESIZE! Majestic! Very Detailed! . . . and now, very rare.
This is the second sculpture I have owned of this piece. I am so enamored with its magnificence. It reminds me of the behavioral studies I did with primates in the 1960s …. chimps, baboons, monkeys, yes… but – unfortunately – not gorillas.
This piece – mounted on a stand, weighing over 20 pounds, hand painted with piercing glass eyes will surely bring attention to anyone close. Magnificient!
Yes, there is some brown mixed into the black hair.
Retired in 2005, I have been following the few left in circulation. Auction sites have had a couple over the last few years . . . but the cost…. ouch …. $1500 USD and above.
Sandra Brue’s art is admired worldwide with works owned by Presidents and commissioned by Disney. Truly amazing detail!
If you are looking for something truly spectacular for your man/woman cave or just having another alpha male/female around the house….. this is it!
Pristine condition. Comes with a custom stand.
