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

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 just said!, express a mischievous Oops!, or communicate a secret-keeping I won’t say a word. May be used to similar effect as ๐Ÿคญ Face With Hand Over Mouth or ๐Ÿค Zipper Mouth.
