This is the original Gouache painting by Bernard Long.

Aegyptopithecus was a small, tree-dwelling, fruit-eating animal living about 33 million years ago. Weighing about 4kg and somewhat resembling a modern-day lemur except for a full set of 32 teeth, this animal has been termed the “Dawn Ape”, an important link between earlier mammals and the apes of the Miocene Epoch. Aegyptopithecus was found in the Egyptian Faiyum Depression, a rich source of Oligocene fossils. The flower which has caught the monkey's attention is particularly finely rendered.
