About the Drawing
We make quite a few visits to our local wildlife park, and it has a small collection of these beautiful gibbons. I love to watch them swinging through the branches in their large cages (this action is known as brachiation). Cages are not ideal, but these large enclosures are as good as it gets in captivity I suppose. These gibbons have beautiful faces, with large eyes, not to mention amazing ball and socket joints on their wrists which mean they can swivel, whilst hanging, almost 360 degrees (which looks painful!).
