RISIS welcomes the Lunar New year with Zodiac Monkey Collection

The Lunar New Year heralds a season of new beginnings and golden opportunities. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, RISIS introduces its 2016 Zodiac Collection — a collection of five sculptures that pays homage to the astute monkey, the ninth animal in the celestial race. A symbol of resilience and quick-wittedness, the monkey’s resourcefulness and keen intellect equips it with the ability to conquer any obstacles it may face, and to grow and prosper even in the face of adversity.

To capture the exceptional qualities of the monkey, RISIS’ craftsmen drew inspiration from the primate’s more pensive characteristics, meticulously crafting these details by hand. Their commitment towards unparalleled quality ensures every detail is captured, from the nuanced expression of each sculpture, to the minute etchings that depict the fine strands of fur on this impressive animal. Each sculpture is then encapsulated in the finest 24K gold, resulting in a precious objet d’art to be treasured for generations.
