In "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.", the three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil. The source that popularized this pictorial maxim is a 17th-century carving over a door of the famous Tōshō-gū shrine in Nikkō, Japan. The phrase was later adopted worldwide as a message of peace and tolerance due to Mahatma Gandhi's visual metaphor of the three monkeys. Wrought Iron handicraft also known as “Pitva Art “ is an Ancient art form made by a very small Tribal community of Bastar, Chhattisgarh. They use mostly waste or left-out Iron pieces, cut them manually with a chisel and hammer, and heat it with charcoal.
