The Great Ape at the Smithsonian Institution

What brand of whimsy is this? Why it's an 11 x 17 inch digital print with a giant ape atop the beloved spire of the Smithsonian Institution!

Comes with this description: An elegant line drawing of the main entrance to the Smithsonian Institution, also known colloquially as “The Castle.” This artist’s rendering from 1849 depicts what the finished building would look like with a group of elegant visitors on a bright spring day, with the District of Columbia’s meddlesome Great Ape atop the gothic-inspired tower. Curse you, Great Ape!
