The standard Buddhist figures only Three Dave, I have seen a Humourous version in Thailand though, the fourth monkey says "I don't give a S¤#%"

Fine Dave, take a trip to Thailand, they have many quirky things like in Pattatya for example you can buy a Tea-shirt with text it says "Good boys go to heaven, Bad boys go to Pattaya"

Well perhaps a fourth could be used (Think no evil) as Dave mentioned but not easy to show artistically. By tradition there were only three, my Mother had a small bronze one that for some strange reason was nowhere to be found when we emptied the house after her burial.

LOL
