The Monkey King, a revered character in Chinese Folklore, provided the inspiration for this cheeky animal. Sitting with a lucky peach, Chris’s monkey symbolises longevity, and the wood from the peach tree is also believed to ward off evil spirits.
This series of 12 original prints is the latest in Chris Chun’s ongoing Chinese Zodiac Collection. It is inspired by various handicraft techniques of China, particularly the well-known Chinese blue and white ceramics (qinghua), which defines the elegant colour palette used here. Each zodiac animal is imbued with layers of meaning and hidden detail, combining traditional Asian symbolism with contemporary Western sensibilities to bring good fortune, health and happiness to viewers.
This print makes a gorgeous and unique gift idea for those born this year and in other monkey years - 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016.
