*Story of Three Monkeys


Mother monkey looks the future of her child.
Child monkey looks into mother's face with full of trust.



Sculptures of monkeys are put on the Shinyosha (Sacred Stable). It consists of 8 panels, which express way of life.

"See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil" in childhood

Preparing independence. Child monkey is still sitting.

Looking up the sky with holding a big ambition
Blue clouds metaphor ambition
.

Facing own life straightly
Sometimes, it comes to crossroad.
Friends encourage each other.



Fall in love.

Two married monkeys
Life is tough like a tidal wave.
What kind of tidal wave will they face in the future?



Pregnant monkey
Child monkey becomes mother someday.
