Monkey Business - III

Danish Modernist Stoneware Sculpture of Mother Monkey and Baby by Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen (LEO Design)

Here a mother monkey cuddles her little one.  Is that a worried expression on her face?  Made by Knud Carl Edvard Kyhn (1880-1969) during his many years working with Royal Copenhagen in Denmark.  Kyhn was an important figure in the world of Danish Modernist ceramics—especially figural sculptures.  He was also a painter and illustrator.  This sculpture was produced in 1969.   Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome work of art.
