OOAK Monkey Doll

I sculpted this monkey doll for my husband Norman while we were dating. It is based on an actual monkey named Zira that belonged to a member of his family. This monkey had boobs (which was impressive to us) and emotional problems (which was sad). We got to meet her in person when we visited his Norm's family in Michigan.
