Three Wise Monkeys
Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No Evil

My take on the famous three wise monkeys above the door of the pub on the corner of George St, in Sydney.

The building was constructed in 1886 and is listed in the City of Sydney Heritage Inventory and the Register of the National Estate.
The monkeys were later added but I can’t find any info on who sculptured them.

Camera – Nikon D90
Lens 55-200mm
Free texture layers used for some toning. Mostly channel mixed and gradient mapped.
