Esteban Najera's adorable and super smart monkey is carved of fossilized ivory, about 2 1/8" tall, 7/8" wide and 3/4" deep. It has tiny eyes of inlaid jet and reaches for a cluster of bananas. Monkey's are social and intelligent animals. Did you know that monkeys have their own individual and unique fingerprints like humans do?
Esteban comes from the greater Laate family of artists. His brother is carver Ruben Najera.
