Monkey Business (origami) by FoldedWilderness Monkey Business (origami) by FoldedWilderness
“We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare.
  Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true.” 

  -Robert Wilensky

Origami monkey, made from a single square sheet of paper, painted one one side with acrylic paint. 
The banana was also made by me, using some very cheap clay.  (It is my first ever experience with clay and I kinda liked it.)

The diagrams to make the monkey are by Lionel Albertino.

yesssssssss - super nice work... :D

ahm, to your quote... some years ago i read about wild animals being captured and brought to here for zoos or being sold in animal shops, and many of them suffer hard or even die during the transport - so i couldn't help to feel a little satisfied when i read about those monkeys in an aeroplane, who were so happy to see the light again, that when the big door of the plane was opened at arrival, they all started to piss like crazy... that monkey urine flooded the plane and soaked the whole machines, spoiling them - in the end they had to damage the plane - yessssssssssssssss... :D

Just beautiful, it's amazing how you paint your origami. Clap If I was looking at this piece far away, I'd probably think that was a real monkey!  That banana looks awesome for a first try. Love
