*Awali, a 230 kg male gorilla now 30 years old, is the source of inspiration for this talented and expressive work. The sculptor Gisèle SIBLER, then a friend of the healer of the majestic animal at the Amneville zoo in Mozelle, was inspired by this great peaceful ape to offer us this excellent achievement.
