Golden Monkey at a Beijing Hotel

News Beijing-based The Opposite House decided to celebrate Beijing Design Week and Golden Week in an unusual way. The hotel installed a giant 45-foot tall figure of a monkey.

The figure is the result of collaboration between the hotel and Australian artist Lisa Roet. Not only had they come up with the idea of a golden snub-nosed monkey, but also decided to put it 98 feet high, so it looks like the giant monkey is climbing the fa├žade of the building.

Golden Monkey can be seen starting from September 22 to October 30. The golden sneezing monkey is made so that it looks like monkeys that live in the forest region near the China-Myanmar region. This image also has connection to the culture of China. In “Journey to the West” the mythological Monkey King Sun Wukong is pictured as a snub-nosed monkey.

The hotel management underlines they wanted to pick a light yet famous image for Beijing Design Week and Golden Week. The golden monkey is a reminder of rich and precious heritage of China.

Golden Week commemorates the founding of the People’s Republic of China and is celebrated on October 1.
