a.k.a. Mandrill Baboon Monkey Mug in 0 collections
From Kin Pottery:
"It is an inhabitant of the humid equatorial forests of Cameroon, Gabon and the Congo. Today it is considered a vulnerable species close to extinction! The mandrill is one of the most unusual primates. This is due to its unusually bright color among all primates and all mammals in general. Despite the size of the canines, Mandrills feed mainly on plant food. They mainly use their menacing-looking fangs in a fight with an opponent. In general, these monkeys have a rather bad and quarrelsome character, they are prone to curiosity, so they often climb into the territory of people and smash everything that gets in their way! Some African tribes paint their faces in characteristic colors that repeat the muzzle of a mandrill."
This design has lots of different variants, multiple colors, and was an open edition.
