๐Ÿ™‰ Hear-No-Evil Monkey

The hear no evil monkey, called Kikazaru (Japanese for “hear not”), one of the Three Wise Monkeys. Depicted as the brown ๐Ÿต Monkey Face with tan or pinkish hands covering its ears.

The Three Wise Monkeys represent the proverb see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, frequently interpreted as a call to discretion or figure for willful ignorance.

Often used as a playful way to convey I can’t believe what I’m hearing! or, more generally, express astonishment or disbelief.
