Probably everyone knows the three wise monkeys (jap. 三匹の猿 sanbiki no saru), but only a few can say something more about the real meaning of this symbol and his origin. These three nice animals are a pictorial maxim, embodying the proverbial principle “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil. The source that popularized this pictorial maxim is a 17th-century carving over a door of the famous Tōshō-gū shrine in Nikkō, Japan. This edition is dedicated to this antique symbol and values which it stands for.
