I think we all know that "you never know what you will see at an antique market"...especially a legendary one like the one north of Paris. I take so many pictures that it takes months to review them when I get home. This picture I took from a distance. I had a feeling that the monkey was real and I hate to see stuffed animals. It just creeps me out. But I stared and stared and finally had to walk over.
With my sneaky camera in hand I pressed my finger once to capture the inside of the glass frame. This monkey was named Napoleon...and apparently, he was a painter. I have no idea what to say about this. I only noticed the brushes when I reviewed the photo.
I do know one thing. This glass aquarium would never come home with me.
