Description

Daniel Taylor’s most renowned masterpiece portrait of a Silverback Mountain Gorilla.

There are only about 790 Mountain Gorillas left in the world, hidden high among the forested volcanoes of central Africa. Many people have seen the movie “Gorillas in the Mist”, featuring the American zoologist Dian Fossey.

Mountain Gorillas are still critically endangered. Major threats include habitat loss and forest encroachment, disease and disease transmission from humans, war or political unrest and oil exploration within the National Parks.
