No See Evil Buddha

Many of us know of the three monkey statues called “See No Evil”, “Hear No Evil” and “Speak No Evil”. The three monkeys are covering their eyes, ears and mouth as if saying that they will see, speak and hear no evil.  Sometimes you can find amulets showing Buddha in these poses. This is the first time I actually saw a large Buddha image covering its eyes. I found this one at a Mon temple in Samut Sakhon.
