Named after a male Pinta Island tortoise (Chelonoidis Abingdonii) and the last known individual of the species. This George is different, he was found on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch George is the only known tortoise of his kind and just like lonesome George, he is now the rarest animal in the world.
George was created to promote the level of pollution in the sea, with every purchase half of the donation go towards the fight against plastic pollution. This project was submitted as my final project for university. I recorded the process and uploaded everything to my Youtube channel (Kyle Robinson). I created George using a process of moulding clay, silicone moulds, epoxy and painting. I also created the packaging, website and advertising.
