Packshot /promo CD cover for The Orange Monkey single. The design is loosely based on an ancient Bactrian object (Bactria included part of what is now Afghanistan). I made the monkey out of air drying clay and buried it in the garden to age it. [ this is one of those weird occasions when you fall in love with something you created as if it made itself - I am still surprised and delighted to see the little fella- I think / hope that Polly feels the same way]
