Buy any 3 Netsuke for £71.00

In Japanese culture, the three wise monkeys embody the proverbial principle "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". Part of Museum Selection's exclusive collection, this Sheltering Monkey Netsuke reflects Japan's rich heritage across culture, folklore and the decorative arts. A sheltering monkey using a leaf symbolises cleverness, offering a playful piece of miniature sculpture in intricately hand-carved boxwood. Beginning as traditional toggle closures for garments, netsuke evolved into a unique form of miniature sculpture from the 17th century onwards.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
