Pennies from Heaven by Kat Davies
'Pennies from Heaven' by Kat Davies - Pastel -
Named after the famous song, this painting depicts a lemur mother and baby. Lemurs are fascinating creatures. Although they are primates, they are neither monkey nor ape but from the biological order of prosimians. They are allegedly named after the lemurs (ghosts or spirits) of Roman mythology due to their appearance including their reflective eyes, the eerie noises they make and their often nocturnal habits.
