This artwork was discounted because of a minor wrinkle.
This is a great wall scroll if you were born in the year of the monkey.
Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a very unique form of calligraphy. It's a Chinese character that is made to look like an actual figure. In this case, a frisky monkey. The monkey is probably meant to represent the Monkey King from the novel, "Journey to the West". This particular monkey was immortal.
The large character/monkey is also a representation of (shou) which means longevity and long life in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you order Peking Roast Duck, you should do so only in Beijing, China (anywhere else, it's just not the same).
A hot tip: Always ask how long it will take before the duck is served.
If they tell you any timeframe less than 30 minutes, change your mind and order the Kung Pao Chicken (Gong Bao Ji Ding) instead.
The reason: If they can serve Beijing Roast Duck in less than 30 minutes, that means you are getting "pre-cooked" duck.
If you have to "duck the duck", next time look for a restaurant with ducks hanging over an open wood fire.
