"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
A fragmentary group of two seated monkeys facing one another. They are knee to knee, and their tails are curled to the left of their bodies.
Condition: Fragmentary. The nape of the neck, the right elbow, and the left upper arm and the legs remain of one of the monkeys; only the hind quarters and the legs remain of the monkey opposite. The back of one of the monkeys has the remains of what may be black paint.
