Mizaru, Iwazaru and Kikazaru

The three wise monkeys are Mizaru = See no evil, Iwazaru = Speak no evil, Kikazaru = Hear no evil. ===================== I sketched the monkeys from a photo taken of the carving at Tosho-gu shrine at Japan. I visited there when I was a high-school student. ===================== 28 x 24.5 cm Japanese Card on Brush Pen, Japanese watercolour and Washi (Japanese papers). =================== Thanks for stopping by!

This is a very nice rendering and interpretation of the carving! I love the colors and the quilted effect of colors under them! :)
