Did you know orangutans are closely related to humans, sharing roughly 97% of our DNA? Like us, they are highly intelligent, perform socially complex behaviours and the name orangutan even means ‘person of the forest’.

Sadly, these gentle giants with the characteristic red fur are being wiped out at an alarming rate due to deforestation for timber and palm oil plantations and also by illegal hunting.

Orangutan numbers are believed to have halved over the last century and with only about 7500 Sumatran orangutans left in the wilds of Indonesia, this species is critically endangered. The Bornean orangutan is also under threat.

Just like Hope the Rhino was a statement piece about protecting our world’s rhino populations, my orangutan sculpture is a poignant tribute to these great apes. It is believed that without intervention, orangutans will be extinct within the next 10 years.   

An innovative metal garden sculpture with exquisite lines and texture, my orangutan can be made to order at any size upwards of 1.3 metres (arm span). Constructed from corten steel, the natural rust red finish beautifully emulates the orangutans of the wild.
