Description
This monkey has a quiet sentimentality, as if he is looking down on a small child. Monkey's are a popular subject in African art because they are seen as a reflection of human nature. They are thought to portray the purest forms of man's emotions. Whether it be the sweetness seen in this piece, anger or great elation, the monkey serves as a popular medium. The gentle lines and relaxed pose of this monkey reminds us of ourselves and brings a smile to our faces. - (PF.2883)
