The sculpture was part of the wildly popular Wow! Gorillas project, which involved sixty leading artists and was timed to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Bristol Zoo in the UK. Running for ten weeks over the summer, the initiative drew attention to the plight of gorillas in the wild.
Lane and Palmer, who donated their creativity for the cause at the last minute, were awarded a silver and a bronze in the Fresh Digital Awards for the gorilla, and also raised £5,000 for it at a charity auction.
