1.Introduction of three wise monkeys sculpture

The three wise monkeys sculpture is a richly symbolic art form that originates from traditional Japanese culture and is widely recognized and beloved. This sculpture typically depicts three monkeys, each respectively covering their ears, eyes, and mouth, sitting together on a common seat. These three monkeys symbolize “See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil,” representing an ancient and profound moral teaching known as the “Three Prohibitions.”

Firstly, the monkey covering its ears symbolizes “Hear No Evil,” signifying the avoidance of listening to malicious words or gossip, maintaining a clear mind, and not being influenced by negative external factors. This serves as a reminder for people to be cautious about what they say and hear in their daily lives, encouraging them to discern what is beneficial to listen to and what is harmful.

Secondly, the 3  monkey statues covering its eyes represents “See No Evil,” implying the avoidance of viewing harmful things or succumbing to worldly temptations, thus preserving the purity and clarity of the mind. This admonition urges individuals to stay away from evil and temptation, cultivate their moral character and self-cultivation, so as not to be swayed by negative external influences.

Lastly, the monkey covering its mouth symbolizes “Speak No Evil,” reminding people not to utter words that harm others, spread rumors, or convey false information. It encourages individuals to control their speech, aligning their words with their actions, and maintaining consistency in behavior. This teaches people to be consistent in their words and actions, ensuring that what they say is what they do, and striving to be individuals of integrity.

In summary, the three wise monkeys sculpture conveys profound moral teachings that remain relevant in contemporary society. It serves as a reminder for people to maintain a clear mind, avoid evil, and uphold moral values in their actions and speech. This artistic form not only holds aesthetic value but also serves as a spiritual guide, urging individuals to steer clear of evil, adhere to the right path, and attain purification and elevation of body and mind.
