Sam will deliver Bwindi for free within an agreed distance.
Bwindi, meaning “impenetrable forest”. One morning I pondered on what I was going to make next, a silverback gorilla, yeah that would be an awesome animal sculpture. 520m of steel and 3 months work.

Sam Anderson has been a full-time metal sculptor since 2006. After completing a silversmithing and jewellery design course, Sam started sculpting in steel soon afterwards.
Sam’s works include such things as an 8m whale shark, bigger than life gorilla, and abstract pieces in recycled materials, using varied techniques for his creations. Sam exhibits throughout NSW and Victoria, with many wins and people's choice awards to his credit.
