Monkey Business - IV

Danish Modernist Stoneware Sculpture of "Victorious Monkey" by Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen (LEO Design)

This great ape raises his arms in victory—a Modernist sculpture by the Danish artist Knud Carl Edvard Kyhn (1880-1969).  Under the artist's careful supervision, this piece was produced in 1969.  The original was sculpted by Kyhn from which a small number were produced each year—enough to satisfy collectors without over-saturating the market.  Each piece is date-marked which makes it easy to determine its year of manufacture.  This particular sculpture is an appropriate gift for the monkey lover who has just completed a Herculean feat: graduation, publication, business start-up.  Click on the photo to learn more about this handsome piece.
