Chinese carving - Monkey mom and babies

$6 / each

This are some Chinese carvings for monkeys. Monkey is one of the 12 Lunar animal. Chinese always will collect the animal represent their birth year. It is dark brown (makes like ancient color). I don't know what is this made of, looks like wood, stone or mud. Seems handmade because everyone with some difference although in same style. I bought this from a local market in Peking (also known as Beijing - capital of China). I love the fine engraving.

We pay for airmail with excellent packing.
