Fair Trade Three Wise Monkeys Good Luck Statue, Pocket Charm – Tiny
These small charms are handmade in Thailand, due to their size they can fit in your pocket and make for wonderful gifts.
These wonderful fair trade three wise monkey statues are very detailed and complex works of art, they are produced from a nice dark coloured resin.
Each statue is first created, usually this is done in wax. The artist carves the statue from the wax and then creates a mould, the mould is then duplicated and then used to create the final finished statue. The resin is poured into the mould and then once it is set the statue is tidied up ready to be sold.
Symbolising good luck and wisdom these wonderful little monkey figures make for great pocket charms.
The three wise monkey are in a circular ‘See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil’ formation.
In some cultures monkeys are seen as associating with turning a blind eye however, in the East, this is not the case. Monkeys are seen as a principal for purity of the mind.
It’s interesting to note that one of Gandhi’s only possessions was a metal casting of the three monkeys.
