A box in the shape of the head of a gorilla or other ape, modelled to fit a circular mount behind the ears. Enamel on metal and freely painted all over in naturalistic colours - red, brown, and green/brown - to represent animal fur. The gorilla has wide, white eyes with brown irises encircled with red dots; it has a wide mouth that curves up at the corners revealing a set of white teeth, including four curved canines.
