This piece has an elegant black background highlighted by a white snout and white painted plastic movable eyes. A delicate moustache comes around the lips. Notice the masterly carved ears that give the piece a special look. Monkeys are present in almost every Ceremonial Dance; they act as buffoons and have the important roll of collecting money from the public for the Religious Brotherhood that sponsors the event. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
