Monkey King Gate
Metal monkey kings
Arms curved, crowns atop their heads
This gate was seen in downtown Indianapolis, found across the street from Monument Circle and Indiana’s State Capitol Building. I call it the monkey king gate. Can you make out the monkey’s face with it’s arms curved around his head and the crown atop his head in the center of each panel? I’m sure there is a technical name for this style of metalwork, but for this post, monkey king will do.
