While I was shooting this picture, I heard a man tell his young son that "look, there are the 'speak no evil', 'see no evil', and 'hear no evil' monkeys!"

They call them The Three Wise Monkeys, hence the speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil.

That's fantastic, only ever seen very small ornaments of these, never anything on this scale

In Holland we say: to hear, to see and to be still..... never understood that because you can see 'speak no evil', 'see no evil', and 'hear no evil' fits it better....

That's excellent!

This particular sculpture caught my eye because I participated in an exhibition last year of mail art inspired by the Three Wise Monkeys that was held in Chauny, France. Here's the online gallery:
