Pittsburgh Artist Constructs Giant Chimpanzee Sculpture Out Of Recycled Cardboard, Glue And 150 Hours Of Quarantine Time

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A Pittsburgh artist is trying to find a home for a giant chimpanzee sculpture created from cardboard during quarantine.

Tyler Gedman shared a photo of the sculpture on Reddit and Instagram.

Gedman says it took over 150 hours to construct the giant chimpanzee from recycled cardboard and hot glue.

"I started building this chimpanzee in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although that situation was difficult, I think that the pandemic presented us with several gifts. My favorite gift being the gift of time," Gedman writes on Instagram.

On Reddit Gedman asks if anyone knows a place in Pittsburgh that would like to give a home to the chimpanzee.
