Yes FOUR! It seems that once upon a time (about 40 years ago) a young Australian photographer sent a beautiful young French girl the traditional three wise monkeys – beautifully carved from ivory.
There was, apparently, some special significance to the fourth one which arrived separately – and she’s spent a significant part of the last 40 years pondering it… with no luck.
If we were in regular contact with that Australian photographer, we could solve the mystery in a flash. But we’re not – so we can’t.
Then… the Aussie photographer arrived! A sudden flash of deja-vu. I last saw this poster on a studio wall in Hong Kong in 1975! 31 years later, and here it was again – in Paris!
