One naked monkey and one clothed monkey... cool example of Sumida pottery.

  1. This is a vase that grows on you... at first I was repulsed... but I couldn't look away... Now I kinda like the monkey vase.

    The little monkey is offering fruit to the big monkey who gets to wear a shirt. Or perhaps the big, clothed monkey is placing fruit in the little monkey's basket... who knows?
