Monkey in a Tree
by Koson Ohara (1877–1945)
In Japan, the monkey’s role in guarding against demons and being regarded as a sacred animal originates from the Japanese word for monkey, ‘saru’ which is a homonym for the Japanese word ‘expel’ (also pronounced saru). The latter word means to ‘dispel’, ‘punch out’ or ‘push away’. According to the legends of Japan’s Mt. Hiei shrine-temple, this makes the monkey an ‘expeller of demons’ and remover of misfortunes.
