NIKKO MONKEYS

  • NIKKO MONKEYS
  • The inspiration comes from the 17th-century wood carving over a door of Tosho-gu Shrine in Nikko, Japan. 8 groups of monkey shows mans life cycle. Which are Mother-child monkeys, Three Wise Monkeys(see no evil, hear on evil, speak no evil) , Sitting alone Monkey(start building independent personality), Look up monkeys (looking at their dreams), Look down Monkeys (be careful during the difficulties in life), Dating Monkeys, Married Monkeys and Pregnant Monkey. Then goes back to the first one, to show life is like a circle.
