that's so incredible/adorable. even w/my distaste for abstract art, i'd love a painting created by a monkey. i'm glad these monkeys get to have some fun doing arts&crafts.

What a wonderful thing she did by setting up this sanctuary. It is great that these monkeys have a place to go. Painting seems to be a great way to enrich their lives. This is very cool!
