The female chimpanzee bears a single young at any time of the year after a gestation period of about eight months. The newborn is almost helpless and clings to the fur of the mother's belly as she moves. For the first 5 months of its life, the baby chimp is carried everywhere by its mother. It begins to walk at about 6 months but is dependent on Mom for at leat two years, sometimes still riding on her back.
This lovely creature is designed and sculpted in England by Matt Buckley at his studios in Shropshire, Edge Sculpture is a collection influenced by style rather than subject. The mix of form, light and texture gives a unique feel to each stunning sculpture. Made from Stone/Resin, Hand Painted & Signed by the artist.
