3 Wise Monkeys

Three Wise Monkeys

The three wise monkeys are the Japanese pictorial maxim, embodied in the proverbial principle of:

“see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”

The three monkeys are:  

Mizaru, who sees no evil, is covering his eyes.  

Kikazaru, who doesn’t hear evil, is covering his ears.  

Iwazaru, who doesn’t speak evil, is covering his mouth.
