Spontaneity and creativity go very well together. The artist behind this picture spontaneously came up with an idea for the monkey zodiac sign in her head and immediately started to realise it. She was inspired by an artist who shapes pressed blossoms into faces. They are intended to express the calm and clarity, but also the curiosity of the monkey. For a few days she dried and pressed leaves from the delicate fern plant in her own garden, which she then arranged and glued onto the canvas to form an imaginative silhouette.
Monkeys have a large circle of friends in the Chinese zodiac. In the animal kingdom the monkey stands out thanks to exceptional intelligence and astuteness. Its spiritual alertness and curiosity bring it much admiration. People born under the zodiac sign of the monkey appear self-confident and at peace with themselves.
