Sizing Information


  • Selected design printed on both sides
  • 1" wide super strong cotton shoulder strap (14" length)
  • Soft yet hard wearing 100% spun Polyester Poplin fabric
  • Dry or Spot Clean Only

A baby Mountain Gorilla is cradled in the arms of her mother, while her father, a large Silverback Gorilla watches from behind. Created to help raise awareness about the serious plight of the Virunga Mountain Gorillas. These creatures are severely endangered and only 650 or so remain alive in the world today. Most die due to illegal poaching, encroachment onto rainforest habitats by charcoal farmers who burn the rainforest trees down and many die due to vicious acts by warring soldiers fighting between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

All of my Mountain Gorilla artwork is dedicated to raising donations from sales to directly benefit the caring organization Wildlife Direct at wildlifedirect.org.

Thank you for helping me to help them. ~ Skye

    firstly congratulation on this amazing image. fantastic and also making us aware again on the plight of these wonderful creates.

    It is astonishing and almost beyond believe, that these poor creatures are still being hounded to extinction by human hunters to satisfy the souvenir market of the middle east and yes dare I say some section of very ignorant American society.

    It almost appears as if Diane Fossey’s work has been in vain. My heart cries.

    Well done and moving. All the earth is under attack right now byt the forces of greed and wanton destruction. Sometimes I think we humans are like a cancer upon the living body of earth. Yet theres also a heightening of consciousness and evolved ways of being.

    Excellent work and a very sad story, greed is so rampant all over the earth, yet there are still a lot of good people and organizations trying to save all these lovely creatures.

    Thank you for being such a creative and evocative voice for the higher forms of life in our world. I sometimes marvel that most humans consider themselves the pinnacle of creation… and sadly shake my head at the blatant audacity of such a claim. Thank you for being a force for positive change and peace.
