Three monkeys sat on an overhanging branch. One monkey hangs  precariously  reaching for the reflection of the full moon in the water, while the other two look on with obvious concern.
Trying to catch the reflection of the moon alludes to classical literature, and it is said to bring good luck if you catch the reflection in your tea bowl during the mid autumn festival.
