This is a superb box figurine inspired by the classical 'Philosophising
Monkey' sculpture by Wolfgang Hugo Rheinhold.
This ornament depicts an ape sat on top of a pile of books, staring intently
at a human skull through his magnifying glass. The ape lifts off to reveal a small compartment.
This measures approximately 18cm or about 7 inches
tall and is made from cold cast resin with polished bronze effect and coloured highlights.
