About the theme

“Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” is a proverbial principle.

It is often depicted by three monkeys, each covering a different sense organ: ears, eyes, and mouth.

It’s commonly associated with the concept of avoiding immorality.

Also, the concept of wrongdoing by ignoring or refusing to engage with it.

The origin of this phrase is often attributed to the Japanese.

To clarify, the Japanese pictorial maxim known as the “Three Mystic Apes”.

This embodies the proverbial principle through the imagery of the monkeys.

The saying emphasizes the importance of avoiding evil influences.

In addition, maintaining moral integrity by controlling what we hear, see, and say.

About skeletons

The human skeleton is the framework of bones that provides support, protection, and structure to the human body.

It consists of around 206 bones at birth.

But, this number can vary slightly from person to person due to differences in bone fusion.

The skeleton can be divided into two main parts: the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton.

The axial Skeleton forms the central axis of the body and includes the skull, vertebral column, and rib cage.

The skull protects the brain and houses the sensory organs such as the eyes, ears, and nose.

Likewise, the vertebral column known as the spine or backbone supports the body and protects the spinal cord.

The rib cage, made up of ribs and sternum, encloses and protects the heart, lungs, and major blood vessels.

The appendicular Skeleton consists of the bones of the limbs and the bones that connect them to the axial skeleton.

Similarly, the appendicular skeleton includes the shoulder girdle, the bones of the arms and hands, the pelvic girdle, and the bones of the legs and feet.

Most importantly, bones vary in size, shape, and density depending on their location and function.

Bones are composed primarily of collagen.

As a result, this protein that provides flexibility, and calcium phosphate, a mineral that provides strength and hardness.

In conclusion, the human skeleton is a remarkable structure.

It not only provides support and protection but also enables movement and contributes to essential bodily functions.
