Literary Vocabulary

LiteraryVocabulary Photo Iwazaru is the one with the hands over the mouth. Mizaru has hands over the eyes and Kikazaru has hands over the ears. Since these three monkeys are depicted in murals in ancient tombs in Nikko, Japan, they are sometimes called the Little Apes of Nikko, but generally they are known in Japan as "Koshinzaru". They owe their existence to a play on a Japanese word "zaru", meaning both "monkey and "not". Actually, the proverb reads, "nonspeaking, nonseeing, nonhearing." In Chinese tradition, the proverb is credited to Confucius. The following definitions of literary terms do not include "hear, speak and see no evil." Match the term to the meaning.
