In Chinese Zodiac, since Feb. 8, 2016 it’s the year of the Monkey. That’s why AMAO designed this very cute and fully articulated Formosan Macaque. The artist hope to use this opportunity to draw attention for Formosan macaques in Taiwan.
In fact, Formosan macaques, have been inhabiting in Mountain Shou-shan in Taiwan for many years. In recent years, tourists or local residents involving in feeding macaques have been raising a controversial issue.

In addition, the intense monkey-human conflict have been occurred resulting an even bigger problem.
