Lady on a Swing - Romance

Epitomises the weddings at Rowton Castle, she is poised, elegant and romantic.

Jaci found that in order to dress the monkey, she had to alter the monkey's anatomy. She has been successful in making the monkey look elegant and pretty, whilst retaining the monkey features. In fact Jaci did want the monkey to wear shoes but the monkey feet do not lend themselves to wearing shoes, so she painted them dangling by a ribbon from her swing.

The gown the monkey is wearing is loosely taken from the famous portrait of Madam Pompadour.
