NEWS & INSIGHTS
Estera is proud to support Durrell in its 60th anniversary year by adopting one of 40 life-sized gorillas to feature in the ‘Go Wild Gorillas’ discovery trail, which takes place from 27th July – 14th October 2019.
Estera is adopting ‘Zeus’ - the only tactile gorilla of the troop - who has just landed in Jersey. Created by Dorset-based artist Caroline Parrott using offcuts from her jewellery and sculpture business, Zeus is a feast for all the senses.
Brendan Dowling, Managing Director of Estera in Jersey, said: “We are really excited to be working with Caroline on this community project. It is a great initiative for islanders and holidaymakers of all ages to connect with art, the outdoors, and nature. Zeus is a fantastic, one-of-a-kind design and we think he will get a lot of attention on the trail.”
Caroline said “My main focus was to create a Gorilla with a textural surface, specifically designed for those with a visual impairment to enjoy. The feeling of the metal surface when it’s touched is tactile and unique. People with limited vision can also appreciate the bold colours that have a subtle sheen in the light.”
Everybody on the trail who visits Zeus has the opportunity to enter into a draw to win a map of Jersey created by Caroline Parrott and finished in the same opulent style as the gorilla.
