Orangutan Edge Sculpture

Free Delivery Included!

Any piece in the Edge Sculpture Collection includes free delivery!


The Orangutan Edge Sculpture is part of the Wildlife and Apes collection in the Edge Sculpture range. Designed and craftsman made in England by talented Sculptor Matt Buckley, the Orangutan is thoughtfully sculpted with an emphasis on aesthetic design moulded with the mind’s eye. Each piece is thoughtfully designed and has a unique feel with a dramatic mix of form, colour, light and texture.

20% of proceeds go to the Jim Cronin fund which helps protect Orangutans so that future generations will get to see these wonderful great apes.

Orangutans are the largest tree-dwelling animals on Earth. They climb up to the canopy to feed, eating ripe fruit, young leaves and the occasional termite or vine. Orangutans are semi-solitary in the wild (unlike other higher primates). Once they reach maturity, they spend most of their time alone, or, in the case of females, with their immature offspring. Adult males old enough to have cheek pads are the most solitary, spending over 90 per cent of their time alone. 

The Orangutan Edge Sculpture is a beautiful representation of these amazing primates and is a perfect addition to any wildlife collection. There are also two baby orangutans to add to your Apes collection, they are the Baby Oh! cheeky monkey and the seated and more thoughtful looking Baby Orangutan. Each orangutan sculpture looks stunning by itself or for a greater impact, why not group all three together as shown here.

How The Orangutan Sculpture is made

The original orangutan sculpture is moulded and given life from clay that is then expertly encapsulated in rubber to produce the parent mould.

It is then cast from a durable composite granite and are vacuum sealed with a bleed as to remove compromising air bubbles from the structure. The curative period is then initiated and sustained until the structure is aptly hardened.

The orangutan is then meticulously examined and fettled as to outline the depth of detail and heighten the sculptures natural form. For finishing it is then passionately coloured, shaded and detailed by our expert artists to carefully represent the magnificent ape; completing the creation of a masterpiece.
