Don’t monkey about- versatile gorilla inspired jewels up for grabs

Take home tonight a framed micro jewellery sculpture, a gorilla named Oudiki, who was born on 17th July 2006 at Howletts Wild Animal Park and later returned to his Gabonese homeland in 2008. He is carved in 18carat white gold , set with 7ct black, brown diamonds and blue sapphires.

“Over the past 50 years, humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable period of time in human history.  This has resulted in a substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth.”  – Devastating words from an extensive survey by the United Nations in 2006.

The evening was a big success with other auction prizes like…
-  Damian Hirst’s – Beautiful Saraswati Exulation 2008
-  Holidays on Richard Branson’s private Necker Island

Dame Edna co-hosted the single game show with the girl around town Elle Mc Pherson and the single guys Kevin Spacey, Time Rice and David Walliams.
