The chimpanzee is one of our most recognized and favorite species of monkey. Whether it be a circus, zoo, movie, TV commercial, space or science project, they have been an integral part of our world for hundreds of years. With such human like similarities, we see in them a little of ourselves as they use their hands to pick up and hold things, kiss and care for their babies, and desire a need to live in a community of family. “Buddy” is my tribute to our love for the chimpanzee and is in the private collection of Cynthia and Dennis Sexton.
