Poster of artwork depicting a sulphur crested cockatoo with its beak open at the top and an owl in the lower left of the image, with text reminding people of the dangers of loose talk, implied by a contrast between the noisy and talkative cockatoo and the generally silent and wise owl. The text comes from chapter 56 of the Tao Te Ching by Laozi (or Lao Tzu).
