Monkey Business


For this project, I took apart a stuffed animal and reconstructed it into something new using the given shape and form. In my situation, the original stuffed animal was a monkey and I wanted to keep that animal for my finished piece. 

Monkeys are a symbol of intelligence and curiosity in Chinese culture. Hence, to provide homage to my upbringing, I utilized this symbolism by creating a hat to emphasize that intellectual behavior comes from the mind.
