See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil


12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil in Japanese is 見猿聞か猿言わ猿 which is read mizarukikazaruiwazaru

The Japanese proverb mizarukikazaruiwazaru meaning “See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil” refers to the three wise monkeys. There are two common ways to write this. One is to use the zaru in hiragana which is a verb conjugation of negation. The other, which I use here, uses the kanji (read zaru) in tribute to the three wise monkeys.
