Bennet Zondo has crafted this Gorilla ark, inspired by themes of family, community and protection. The selection of animals aboard the ark represents some of the most loved, but most endangered species. The Gorillas show their strength by holding a roof above the animals heads, offering shelter from the rain.
Mthulisi Ncube has used earthy tones and detailed brush strokes to bring each animal to life. The parrots sit atop the roof in their rainbow coat of colours and the tortoise shell patterning compliments the woody tones of the ark.
