Monkeying Around

Just a quickie today. While stood in the queue waiting to see the Banksy exhibition in Bristol I had time ( a lot of time!) to look at the surrounding buildings. There was a row of Gothic looking buildings, some houses, some now offices, and they all had interesting animal cravings above the windows. My favourite one was this odd monkey one. Its all a bit sinister looking and reminds me of something but I can't quite remember what! Any thoughts?

It kind of reminds me of the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz film. Definitely sinister!

The architectural details you find there are really creepy sometimes! Still amazing though.

Yep, Wizard of Oz for sure. Glad you made good use of the queue! That's using the old noggin'!

It's interesting that the monkey is wearing a tunic and pants of some sort. Looks like he is stopping the cat(?) from stealing the eggs? I must do some research on this now.
