He was the first, at the bottom of the steps into the primate house. It’s a man hugging a chimpanzee, an interesting theme. Apparently, Vierheller is often seen driving around in his convertible with a chimpanzee in the passenger seat. The George Philip Vierheller with his gorilla was unveiled in 1962 when Vierheller retired at the age of 82 and was carved by Richard Frazier. However, it has proved to be a controversial statue. Despite what the plaque says, Verhelle brought visitors into the zoo in a way that doesn’t fit with zoo policy today: for example, he used an elephant playing harmonica, a bear drinking beer, a lion praying or a chimpanzee riding a bicycle or pony. As the public face of the zoo, he was photographed with friends such as Miss Jim the elephant, Phil the gorilla, and beluga the elephant seal. Over the years, George Philip Vierheller with his gorilla statue has been referred to as curious George, which seems more appropriate! Right next to the current primate house, the zoo is working on a new project scheduled to open in 2021: Primate Canopy Trails. Looking at the huge posturing around the site, it looks like it will be a very interesting event. If you are thinking of adding an ornament to your garden, this George Philip Vierheller with his gorilla sculpture is for you. Aongking can also customize any sculpture for you.
