Quick-witted, charming and lucky, the adaptable Monkey livens up any occasion.
Delight in the playful monkeys balancing on top of each other, and juggling small glowing peaches, with a large golden peach at the top – the peach representing long life.
Zhang’s impressive 8 metre tall Monkey tower captures the monkey as playful and child-like. Their poses were developed from imagining the monkey as acrobats hopped on each other’s shoulders.
