    When we talk about monkeys, we know that there are various kinds of them. Scientifically speaking, they all fall under the order known as Primates. Primates are further divided into two suborders known as Prosimians and Anthropoids. Capuchins are monkeys that belong to a superfamily called Ceboidea (New world monkeys), which falls under the suborder Anthropoids (Downing). Capuchins are usually brown or black in color, some of them with a white face, depending upon the species. Their weight can range between six to twelve pounds and their lifespan can go up to a bit more than fifty years (Downing).

    “Flora and fauna were vitally important to her pre-Columbian ancestors and during her life this precious resource was cultivated by the oppressed indigenous population she championed. She connects herself to the natural world by echoing the hairs on the vegetation and monkey in her own tresses, styled in her signature indigenous fashion. This bond with nature is reinforced by the curves of her monkey’s arm that embrace her neck, the root-like ribbon slung around the monkey (which she used as a…

    Capuchin monkeys are some of the most interesting primates of the animal kingdom. It is highly likely that the first time a person encountered a capuchin monkey is not in person, but in a comedy movie featuring a capuchin as the main character’s comedic sidekick or pet.

    To start off with the monkey in the beginning of the film really made me think because at first glance it was so strange. I feel the purpose of the dead monkey in the film was to make the audience think. It was so strange it made me think because it just didn’t fit in the story at the first look unless they were going for some kind of David Lynch thing on just throwing something in the story that is weird just for the sakes of being different and strange. (Yes I know the movie was made way…

    A Da’s Monkeys Fish the Moon (1980) demonstrates the change in Chinese animation at the end of the Cultural Revolution. The film drives the popular technique of cut-paper in animation forward. On first glance, this film looks as nothing more than as a cutesy film with bumbling monkeys trying to catch a moon. However, the underlying context of the film shows a different story. Monkeys Fish the Moon uses the monkeys’ dynamics and background landscape to show that the Chinese population’s…

    There are so many little journeys in the novel Monkey, but the ones where the Monkey gained more powers were the most interesting to me. From the beginning of the novel the Monkey is always changing; starting out as a stone on the Mountains of Flowers and Fruit. To eventually becoming Buddha at the end of the novel. Power can be described in many ways, it can be described as magical power but also power can be measured by growth or respect, the ability to not die, to become enlightened. The…

I recall that I really enjoyed tales such as these; perhaps I was fascinated by monkeys. Well, at least I know I spent many a time annoying my mother with requests to watch “that show with the guy and the big yellow hat.” But though my fascination is certainly no more, I was reminded of my early days…
