Artist's Description

This is bronze sculpture in the San Diego Zoo.
It is a memorial to M’Bongo, brought to the zoo in 1931, as a juvenile endangered Mountain gorilla. He died at about age 16 and weiged 600lbs.
One day, I hope, the word “endangered” will no longer apply to any living creature that flys, swims, slithers creeps, or walks….

Photographed back when I only had a Rebel XTI… before my Canon 40D!
