I have always loved this Indian market scene, at the back of the upstairs Indian gallery at the Peabody Essex. There is always something new to see — the dwarf, the fish seller — but our favorites have always been the monkeys. They are up on the roof, eating things they have stolen.
Here is my nephew Liam, looking at the market for the first time this fall.
Little did I know that those monkeys are still busy at work, stealing food from market sellers. Thanks to BBC’s HumanPlanet show, we saw this clip of the monkeys busy stealing.
