Trilogy of Buddhist monk statuettes in a performance called "The Secret of Happiness"

Dimensions: height 8 x 6 x 4cm approx. (each statuette). Weight approx. 700g (for the set). Material: brass. Handcrafted creation imported in compliance with fair trade rules: each statuette is unique and may have differences in appearance compared to the model photographed.

A superb trilogy unearthed from a talented ironworker

These three brass monks are an artisanal creation of an Indonesian ironworker with whom we have been working since 2003. Made using the traditional method, they have the charm of handmade objects and play with fashion effects.

The 3 little monks imitate the famous "3 monkeys of wisdom", a symbol of Chinese origin made up of 3 primates each covering a different part of the face (eyes, ears and mouth), these statuettes form a kind of pictorial maxim: "I see nothing, I hear nothing, and I say nothing".

To those who follow this maxim, nothing but good will happen. This is why this depiction is called "the secret of happiness" or sometimes "the secret of eternal love".

Buying virtuously by supporting craftsmanship

  • Support for crafts : by buying a handicraft creation, you are supporting the traditional craft sector and contributing to the sustainability of ancestral know-how.
  • Inimitable quality and durability : The handicrafts are designed with special care and attention to detail, resulting in significantly higher quality and durability compared to industrially manufactured products.
  • Sentimental value : By choosing a handcrafted object, you create a deeper connection with it because you also appreciate the creative process and the story that brought it to you.

In short, there is no doubt that decorative objects from handicrafts offer an aesthetic, cultural and emotional value that goes far beyond that of industrial products.
