PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Darwin's Theory of Evolution is the widely held notion that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor. Here, a monkey is asking which is true—did it evolve and will really become a man someday, or was it created an ape and will always just be an ape? This authentically handcrafted cold-cast bronze sculpture depicts Darwin's Ape that is holding a human skull. This piece is covered in bronze earth with the face painted in a golden shade and the rest, including the base, featuring green patina, and goldish accents. It has meticulous attention to detail, from the facial features of the monkey and physique to the square platform.
