| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Monkeys appear to have been trained to assist in gathering fruit; and the Egyptians represent them in the sculptures handing down figs from the trees to the gardeners below; but, as might be expected, these animals amply repaid themselves for the labor imposed upon them, and the artist has not failed to show how much more they consulted their own wishes than those of their employers.” — Goodrich, 1844
