These 3 cat statuettes are inspired by the famous "monkeys of wisdom",symbol of Asian origin consisting of 3 monkeys, each of which covers a different part of the face. The first the eyes, the second the mouth and the third the ears. They form a kind of pictorial maxim: "See nothing, hear nothing, say nothing (wrong)". To the one who would follow this maxim it would happen only good, which is why we call this representation "the secret of happiness".
Dimensions: height 14 x 4 x 4cm (approximately for each cat). Material: exotic wood (Albizia) carved and painted by hand. Wood from planted forests. Fair trade with the artisan manufacturer.
In some parts of Asia, they are also said to represent the secret of eternal love. Notice to lovers!
Each statuette is unique because it is the fruit of the work of a craftsman. Slight differences in appearance are therefore possible compared to the model photographed, which we have chosen as representative.
Coco Papaya works with more than 300 craftsmen like the one who sculpts these statuettes! With each of them we establish a win/win partnership. The craftsman himself sets the price of his creations, which allows him to live with dignity from his work, and sometimes even to hire young apprentices to whom he will transmit his know-how.
