LALIQUE celebrates 2016, the year of the Monkey in Chinese astrology, through sculptures, a votive and a vase in satin-finished crystal, either clear or gold luster. Smart, witty and fast-learners, those born in the years of the Monkey have a great thirst for knowledge and are gifted with a great memory. Diplomatic and intelligent, they always make their way through any situation.
LALIQUE pays tribute to the natives of this sign through these original pieces and designs. The three wise monkeys are a pictorial maxim from Asia. Each monkey covers a different part of their faces with their hands. Together, they embody the proverbial principle to "see no Evil, hear no Evil and speak no Evil". Mahatma Gandhi’s one notable exception to his lifestyle of non-possession was a small statue of the three monkeys.
