The little monks are manifesting the Buddhist principle of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, do no evil” in four different gestures. These beautiful monks will add a touch of Feng Shui and good vibes to your house and garden.
The little monks are inspired by the statuettes of the three wise monkeys at the Nikko Toshogu Shrine in Japan.
The three wise monkeys, one covering its eyes, another its ears, and another its mouth, represent the principle of not seeing (Mizaru), not hearing (Kikazaru), and not saying (Iwazaru), which was introduced to the western world, leading to the coinage of the proverb “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”
This Buddhist tenet reminds us of not dwelling on evil thoughts.
Between their meaningful gestures and peaceful facial expression, they make a perfect gift for everyone!
