Gorilla Silver Back 39"
A true display piece this exquisite Silver Back Gorilla has been handcrafted by our Hansa artisans to perfection. His brute strength is exemplified by his strong legs and long arms. His hairless face and silver back is true to life. But his warm eyes make him so special. Use as an accent piece, or a display piece in a store. Either way you will surely have great reactions to your choice.
A silverback gorilla is the mature, experienced male leader of a group of mountain gorillas in the wild. Named for the silver saddles across his back, the silverback is responsible for the safety of his group. A group of gorillas, also called a “troop,” can contain from 5 to 30 gorillas.
This is an exceptionally made product. The detail, craftsmanship and materials used transcend anything I have seen before. For instance, the head is tilted and turned ever so slightly to one side and the chest is off center to give feeling of movement and being alive. You can really tell that Hansa did it's research. Gorillas can be scary looking, but this stuffed animal looks so real, yet not scary. All you want to do is pet it, which makes it perfect for kids; however, I classify this as an heirloom treasure to add to my collection.
