London Public Art for a Cause

Discovered a Gorilla Trail in the heart of Covid Garden in London. Was disappointed that I just saw 3 instead of the 15 life size gorillas that was scattered there.

This trail aims to show the beauty of this endangered species as well as educate the people on what is being done to help their survival.

This is Precious, the work of Sally Wood. This gorilla has been inspired by the highly endangered Silverback Gorillas showing how precious they are.

This is John Cleese’s, a comedian, and his wife Jen’s gorilla named Frankie. It reminds everyone of the magic of London, past, present and future.

Ronnie Wood is the guitarist of the Rolling Stones and this is his Paint it Black, inspired by the 1966 Rolling Stones hit of the same name.

These toppers on the post box in Covent Garden are produced by people called Spin Up a Yarn. These knitted and crocheted toppers are used to raise money for charities.

    Teresa, Thank you for your PPAC contribution. The gorillas are all beautiful. I love the knitted and crocheted toppers. I hope both initiatives raised a lot of money.
