The figures of the "Monkey Chapel" by Johann Joachim Kaendler from 1753 served not only as decoration but also as a joking self-portrait of courtly society. Like these messages in arts and crafts, the monkey as a motif was very typical at the time. The ensemble of 21 collectible figures achieved great fame due to the humorous criticism as well as the detailed craftsmanship. Even in this new edition, each monkey is still handmade as well as hand-painted. For collectors, the colorful collectible figures are a highlight, but also convince as individual pieces with their charm. Enrich your home with this cute, hand-painted "Bassoonist" figure as a reminder of the masterful art skills Kaendler.
