This original woodcut by Philadelphia-based artist James Mundie is a limited edition of 100 printed on Awagami Kitakata, a warm-toned Japanese gampi paper. Each sheet is printed by hand through pressure applied with a bamboo spoon.

Many a fair-goer once witnessed the incomparable spectacle of monkey jockeys riding greyhounds. I like to think of this wacky phenomenon as a half-step between the dog track and the sport of kings, both exotic and lowbrow all at once. Some enterprising showmen even took the concept a step further with monkey speedway, an attraction where capuchins chased each other around a track in pint-sized automobiles. Think what you will, monkey racing in any form was a crowd pleaser.

The design was drawn directly upon and carved from a block of poplar, a light but strong wood well suited to my style of carving. My preferred cutting tool is a single-edged razor blade, as it allows me to cut fine details. Each sheet is printed by hand through pressure applied with a bamboo spoon.

What an outstanding piece of artwork! As I saw him emerging from tiny shavings of wood to this magickal creature, I knew I wanted him to live at my house. The Mundies have an incredible way of making each piece of their craft come TO LIFE! Thank you for the fast send off! I absolutely love and cherish it! 💓

My husband and I love this! I made a narrow matting out of red glitter scrapbook paper and put it in a simple frame. It came out fantastic! (My image is pixely not the actual item)
