A life-sized ape was seen perched at the top of a Norwich skyscraper this evening to promote a new art trail.
A King Kong gorilla on a six metre tall Empire State Building was unveiled outside the Odeon cinema in Riverside to promote GoGoGorillas.
The outdoor art trail - featuring more than 50 decorated gorillas in public places across the city - is set to be officially launched on June 24.
Ten of the life-sized gorillas were on show in Riverside last night along with the King Kong creation, which featured alongside a screaming actress and a 3D street art image of a New York taxi scene.
The 2.4m tall King Kong and tower took three weeks to create.

The trail runs from June 24 to September 7. Follow the project's progress by visiting www.gogogorillas.co.uk
