The monkey was ordered and bought directly in the shop in Bredgade 47, Copenhagen.
The monkey acted as an eye-catcher in front of the shop Bonnema on Kongensgade 53 in Esbjerg. It sat in all kinds of weather dressed in seasonal clothes. It also became the store's landmark on stationery, etc. From 1980, when the store closed, the monkey hung in a tree in the garden until it fell apart. The monkey was subsequently restored. Several XXL animals have been produced since, but numbers are not known.

Material : Teak FSC, Limba

Size : Height 92 cm., width 90 cm. and depth 29,50 cm.

The Kay Bojesen monkey is a classic and a lovable friend who will be by our side through each stage of our lives – from the kids’ room to becoming a beloved design icon in the home.
The first Monkey was born in 1951 and is still produced in the same way today as it was then. Each figure has been created by hand and crafted at a Danish wood-turning mill.
