While Master Carver Peter Calvesbert has never seen a Proboscis Monkey (after all, they are only found on the island of Borneo), he had little difficulty capturing its essence, due to its prominent feature - a large, fleshy nose that droops downward over its chin. But its second most noticeable trait – its brightly colored genitalia – posed a bit of a dilemma. The interior of this box figurine shows a “handsome” big nosed man holding a sign that says “Big noses are sexy”.
Inscriptions include the monkey’s Latin name (Nasalis Larvatus) and “I love swimming” as Proboscis are known for their swimming ability.
