monkey window

This is the strangest window - in one of the shops that's part of La Fonda, the old hotel on the Plaza in Santa Fe.  I think it's looking forward to mid-February, since a placard in old-style writing - not visible here - reads Be My Valentine - and there are a lot of roses.  But other than that?  Does one read the (very light skinned, or should that be furred?) monkeys in some kind of racial way, or not?  Is it Regency, or Madame de Pompadour, or some strange atemporal baroque fantasy?  Is any of this stuff for sale, or would one think of it as an installation?  I'm puzzled.
