Hati the Orangutan: Miniature Edition Sculpture

I was commissioned to paint a special miniature edition sculpture of Hati, my orangutan for Jungle City.

The original ‘Hati’ sculpture featured at Jungle City was over a meter tall and took several weeks to paint.

This special edition orangutan sculpture was only 18cm tall and was completed over a couple of evenings. I scaled the original design down, and painted some of the finer details with toothpicks.

Jungle City  was Scotland’s largest outdoor exhibition held in the summer of 2011 and featured 130 life size sculptures of some of the planet’s most endangered species, painted by a variety of creatives.

The exhibition raised over £400,000 for Elephant Family and partner charities the Sumatran Orangutan Society and WWF.
