Dancing monkeys and doomed busses

This is a rather interesting work by Charles. It is a mountain and a bus. Rocks and other things are falling off the mountain because the monkeys are dancing on it. There are also big cracks in the mountain for the same reason.

Charles told me that there are people hiding in the bus, which is made of granite, but “that won’t help them”. Apparently the rocks are so large and / or so fast that the bus won’t stop them even though it is made of rock. The bus is also stuck, although Charles wasn’t clear on why that was.

Technically, note how Charles has blended both markers and stickers to create the overall work, as part of his “multi-media” experimentation.
