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 peaches representing long life.
Zhang’s impressive Monkey tower captures the monkey as playful, cheeky and child-like. Their poses were developed from imagining the monkey as acrobats hopped on each other’s shoulders.
