The Mighty Monkey King ring has an intaglio motif of the Monkey King himself with a epic golden crown and his trusty golden staff. On the sides there are the three wise monkeys of see, hear and speak no evil. With Balinese styled borders, the Monkey King ring comes with your choice of one of four stones, white diamond, black diamond, red ruby and blue sapphire.
The ring comes in a sustainably sourced wooden box as well as the Serpent Cove treasure chest with all its Cove trinkets. Standard postage within Australia included, express and international postage available at an additional cost.
Monkeys are everywhere throughout Asia. They are cheeky, mean, energetic, cunning and at time thieves. They mimic and parallel human behaviour with their personalities. They are often known to be and seen around temples and forests, living close to humans. They are very clever creatures, knowing they will be able to get food gifted to the gods in the temples. They are always causing mischief.
There are many tales we personally have with monkeys. Some of us have been bitten and others stolen from and there are many more interactions. The story that inspired this piece is the Monkey King. A story with origins from China but a favourite throughout Asia. A powerful being of mischief and an ever unquenchable thirst for immortality. His strength is only rivalled by his amazing stories in “journey to the west”. It carries elements of the working class farmers rising up against the elites which I can relate to coming from a small rural farming family
