Photographer's Note

While the monkey do some performance to entertain the audience and perhaps for his own pleasure, the servant solicit or kind of hypnotize the monkey to do the prophecy.
Utterly defferent relation from the popular TV show monkeys.

The man named Murasaki Shuji, most authentic successor and authority of monkey prophet here in Japan seems to me the model of Chief Jibashiri in "Mononoke hime". The wooden carrying box for the utensils, just like that of Jibashiri is seen on the stage. Today, Murasaki and the monkey prophet are touring all over Japan on their mini van.
