Artwork Description

“Proboscis Monkeys are found only on the island of Borneo, where they inhabit forests along the coast and some large rivers. Adult males are easily recognized by their outsize schnozzes. The Malay people called them “orang belanda” (white man), the same name they used for Dutch settlers.”
