This medium weight cotton t-shirt features Ai Weiwei's "Monkey" from his Zodiac LEGO series, a group of works created from thousands of LEGO bricks that represent each of the 12 animals in the cycle of the Chinese zodiac.
The image wraps around the right side of the body and also appears on the front and back as a large graphic. Weiwei's signature is printed on the back under the neckline. As the original artwork is composed of LEGO bricks, this texture is visible in the printing giving it a pixelated look.

Years of the Monkey: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016
