Aja at The Thistle Hotel Bristol, Wow Gorillias

This gorgeous gorilla stands in the foyer of a hotel in the centre of Bristol. Brian and the dogs stayed outside while I dashed in to grab these pictures.

“The name Aja is taken from the Yorubian goddess of the Forest, Herbs and Animals.
The artist, Joseph Dunmore writes:

My Aja is a kind of Gorilla deity, or a cosmic gorillas, an enlightened and wise being..

…The design on her body is based on a mix of plant form and the nervous system with the seven chakra points marked along her back.
