Monkey God and Monkey Blood

Monkeys are great, and if Darwin is right, so were my great, great, great, great……… grandparents.

I did a quick search on Google for ‘Monkey God’.

  • Not only is he a divine entity in Hinduism – Hanuman.
  • He is a character in a Chinese epic novel – Sun Wukong
  • Also a major deity in the classic Mayan civilisation – Howler Monkey Gods.

Also ‘Monkeyblood’ turns out to also be a chemical substance called Merbromin, which is used as an anti-septic, and contains mercury and is no longer sold here in the UK.

Anyway, forget all that for the moment, you know who The Monkey God is, and what Monkey Blood is, as it tells you in the About page 😉

  1. My mom used monkey blood on us growing up. Explains a lot. My first sketch was not up to par, so I will have to try again.

    • Hee hee 🙂 looking forward to seeing it 🙂
      Ill try and stick some of my building models in a sketchup file in a while and blog it… might be useful as you can use the buildings in your own Sketchup file to create town maps.
