This horn player, a porcelain Meissen monkey, is dressed in the height of 18th-century court fashion. He and fifteen other simian musicians were part of an orchestra that was mounted in front of an organ case with a clock dial. The use of monkeys mimicking human behavior was a genre of visual arts called Singerie. It was intended as a mild satire and amusing visual.
