Violent Primate Sculptures
The 'Old Enemy, New Victim' Sculpture Has Monkeys Engaged in Combat

By: Alexander Lam (Star) Jul 10, 13

The ‘Old Enemy, New Victim’ sculpture by American artist Tony Matelli captures a vicious struggle between three monkeys. The hyper-realistic installation depicts primates attempting to hurt each other in a human-like death match.

Two emaciated monkeys are seen attempting to kill a much larger obese one. As one monkey strangles the gluttonous primate, the other works to bite away at folds of fat. The large victim is laying on its back while the two monkeys furiously attack it.

Matelli created the ultra-realistic sculpture by using an assortment of materials. Old Enemy, New victim is made of fiberglass, silicone, steel, paint and yak hair. Using these materials, Matelli sculpted the monkeys with extreme precision.

The vicious primate sculpture is not the first hyper-realistic sculpture that Matelli has made. His previous works include less violent primates as well as realistic human sculptures.
