Artist's Description

Barbary Apes (Macaca Silvanus)
They were introduced to Gibraltar by the British around 1740. Local folklore has it that Gibraltar would cease to be British if the monkeys were to leave. Sir Winston Churchill took it seriously enough to ship extra monkey from North Africa to Gibraltar during the Second World War.
