For Easter 2015, Paris chocolate artist and chocolatier Jean-Charles Rochoux is featuring the Three Wise Monkeys—Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru—beautifully sculpted in chocolate.
The Three Wise Monkeys are a pictorial maxim that reminds us to “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.” The trio’s popularity can be traced to a 17th-century carving over the door of a shrine in Nikko, Japan.
Rochoux’s wise chocolate monkeys are available in dark, milk or white chocolate and come with assorted praliné eggs. Each one is 19 cm tall and weighs 380 grams.
