Cheeky Monkey

Autumn Moon in the Sky - Chen Wenling

Autumn Moon in the Sky – Chen Wenling

This is one of my favourite offerings in this year’s Sculpture by the Sea. I’m not entirely sure if this character is a monkey or not, but he certainly is cheeky! And I lived in England long enough for the phrase “cheeky monkey” to be familiar.

The sculpture looks (to me) to be telling a tale about the autumn moon, and since the sculptor’s name is Chinese I assumed it was a Chinese tale. But I couldn’t find anything online that fit. If you know the tale behind the action in this sculpture, please let me know.
