Monkeys are intelligent and playful, making them a fun addition into your decor. In the Japanese culture, monkeys symbolize the trickster but to the Hindus, they represent strength and loyalty as seen in the part human-part monkey Hindu god, Hanuman. Humans have always been fascinated with monkeys, possibly because we are cousins genetically. Black and white photographic art prints like Angela Muliani Hartojo's 'Big Smile...Please' and William Vanderson's 'Congo's Artwork' are striking examples of how similar monkeys are to humans. Celebrated artworks that feature monkeys include Frida Kahlo's 'Self Portrait with Monkey and Parrot,' Japanese painter Koson Ohara's 'Monkey and Moon,' and Street artist Banksy's 'Laugh Now.'
