One monkey or two - that was the question.

When print artist Huang Yongyu was invited to design a set of stamps to celebrate Chinese New Year, which falls on Feb 8, China Post suggested that he draw a female monkey holding a baby monkey, in honor of the approaching Spring Festival in the Year of the Monkey.

Huang insisted on drawing two baby monkeys. "China has launched the two-child policy," the 91-year-old artist said in an interview with Beijing Legal Evening News. "Two baby monkeys will be OK."
