Pupils from Norwich School designed one of the 53 adult apes that feature in the GoGoGorillas! art trail through Norwich.

Norvic the gorilla was created by the Norwich School design department and sponsored by the school. More than 250 pupils created symbols inspired by their life and interests at Norwich School, and their illustrations were used to create a blue and white design for Norvic. The design was the idea of artist in residence Georgina McDonald-Bell and photography and 3D teacher Edward Cann. Norvic can be found in Cathedral Close, along with another adult gorilla sculpture called Juno who has been designed by Mik Richardson and sponsored by Almary Green. The adult gorilla sculptures on display across the city have been designed by local artists and sponsored by local organisations. There is also a trail of baby gorillas decorated by Norfolk school pupils.

GoGoGorillas!, which runs until September, is raising funds for Break and the Born Free Foundation. Visit www.eveningnews24.co.uk to see a video of Norvic being created.
