Blue Mountain Linocut

They’re called “Gibraltar Apes”, but they aren’t apes, they’re monkeys; Barbary Macaques. Legend has it that as long as they live on the rock, it will remain under British rule. They were amazing! They jumped from tree to tree, climbed the railings, and sat looking out over the streets and bay as if contemplating the view. One stole Matt’s gift shop bag, and as he crept up on it, softly calling it a thief, I moved in from the side and snatched it back! Strangest of all was when they jumped on us, and we felt the weight of their warm furry bodies. For years, Wayne used the photo of himself with a monkey on his shoulders as his My Space photo.
