The Three Wise Monkeys is an ancient visual axiom that comes from Japan with the principle of "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil". Its meaning seems to depend on if you're in the east or west. In Asia it relates to being of good mind and action. Here in the cynical west, we tend to associate it with turning a blind eye to evil. But whatever you take from it, these Three Wise Monkeys Skeleton Figures are great daily reminders to do the right thing. Also..... they're just badass. They measure about 2 3/4" tall and come in a set of all three, boxed and ready for gift giving.
