This highly detailed and finely sculpted totem form bronze features the famous Wise Monkeys - see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. It stands on a plinth with stacking monkeys, the highest of which is holding a basket which we believe is an incense burner. There are no markings, occasional small and minor blemishes, and a pack of clay in the underside which the previous owner may have used for ballast though it seems not to require any. It could be removed as desired. The bronze is Japanese and most likely late 19th or early 20th C. It displays quite nicely and distinctively. Dimension: 12 3/4" h
