This sculpture will bring an adorable array of baby animals to the streets in partnership with the world’s most renowned wildlife charity, WWF. 20 cute yet magnificent newborns of all different species will be expertly crafted in bronze, each representing real baby animals from around the world.

A celebration of the incredible diversity of the animal kingdom, the babies will be made up of many different animals, from polar bears to koalas. Each will be approximately 1 meter tall, all interacting and playing with each other. They will each be at home in their natural environments with native rocks and plants included in the exhibition, showing the public each animal’s natural playgrounds and inviting them to play along too.

But every baby needs a mother to love and protect no matter what. These babies are all connected to their universal mother, a giant gorilla. Great and beautiful at 3 meters in height, she sits with her arms spread wide, welcoming all the animals into the safety of her embrace. But this protection is not only for the 20 bronze babies, it is extended to all the humans who come her way, inviting them to join her in saving the baby animals of the world.

This sculpture project is created to be interactive, giving the public a unique experience to touch, cuddle, and get up close and personal with some of the worlds most endangered species. Each individual sculpture will have a QR code attached where the public will be sent to information and pictures about the real-life animal in its natural habitat, giving a deeper understanding of wildlife in all its diversity.
