MONKEY GOD

‘Monkey god’ is a unique work of art by the Spanish artist Ksenia Lutsenko. It portrays a Japanese monkey, proudly sitting on monastery shrine. The name and the image itself were inspired by the story of these proud creatures.

“When the Buddhism arrived in Japan in the 6th century it brought with it the stories and lore surrounding these monkeys. Simians were believed to be protectors and messengers of the gods, hence they were carved into many religious buildings and shrines. Unfortunately, a hundred years later, the attitude towards these monkeys has dramatically changed. Now they aren’t treated as godly creatures anymore. That has changed towards a far more hostile attitude. I created this work to remind ourselves how beautiful wildlife is and that any creature should be treated with respect.” — Ksenia Lutsenko

‘Monkey god’ is a unique painting created with watercolours on professional 100% cotton Khadi handmade watercolour paper. It measures 38.5 x 57.5 cm and ships ready for framing.
