Animalistic Superhero Sculptures

This Iron Man Gorilla Sculpture Turns Tony Stark into a Primate

— June 29, 2013 — Social Good
In Norwich, UK, an unexpected Iron Man gorilla sculpture has recently popped up, shocking and awing many surprised residents and tourists. Its artist, Martin Wall, works for a movement called Go Go Gorillas, which creates gorilla sculptures based on pop culture icons. Go Go Gorillas brings these sculptures to small towns all over the UK, adding a little primate flair to their otherwise traditional towns.

This particular statue injects the iconic Tony Stark with some of his primate ancestry. Instead of showing Iron Man in his erect, human form, this statue depicts a gorilla, resting on his gigantic knuckles, wearing the famous Iron Man costume. Go Go Gorillas uses its sculptures as a way to support the Born Free Foundation, which aims to protect gorillas from the threat of poachers and other hunters.

With this statue, Go Go Gorillas has proven that activism can combine both art and humor to leave a lasting message on viewers, making it one of the most innovative charitable organizations in the world.
