I took some liberties with barns in this spread, a deserted temple represents a "monkey house." In my imagination I am sure such places exist. In fact, I think I remember such a place in a film Passage to India or perhaps Jewel in the Crown.
This piece turned out rather dark. It was much lighter but I did not like the writing that I had added and decided to cover it up with paint. The poor monkeys are thus pushed back further into the background than I had intended. I thought about covering up the whole spread and starting over, but it presents better in person than this uploaded version.
