With the growing success of expeditions to faraway Africa, the majestic animals of the savannah became an ever-increasing focus of attention for the early 20th century sculptors. Theodor Kärner undertook studies on living animals found in the Munich Hellabrunn Zoo which had opened in 1911. His model of the crouching monkey forms part of the safari collection at Nymphenburg. Made in their superior porcelain and hand painted by Albert Bauml.
