An enraged gorilla is depicted using a quote from DH Lawrence's Mornings in Mexico. He describes life in the South West from the perspective of an extra terrestrial who finds the interactions between indigenous locals and expanding capitalists, whom he calls "The Great White Monkeys" with sadness and amusement.
"The great white monkey has got hold of the keys of the world, and the black-eyed Mexican has to serve the great white monkey, in order to live. He has to learn the tricks of the white monkey-show: time of the day, coin of money, machines that start at a second, work that is meaningless and yet is paid for with exactitude, in exact coin. A whole existence of monkey-tricks and monkey-virtues."- D.H. Lawrence, excerpt from Mornings in Mexico, 1927
