The Three Wise Monkeys

The three wise monkeys, sometimes called the three mystic apes, are a pictorial maxim. Together they embody the proverbial principle to “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. Three Wise Monkeys
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.

Sometimes there is a fourth monkey depicted with the three others; the last one, Shizaru, symbolizes the principle of “do no evil”. He may be shown crossing his arms. (Ref Wikipedia)

This modern age picture truly depicts that all need to keep our eyes, ears and mouth open to combat al evil happening around us. Guess its no different for the 21st Century Social primate as well.
