happy easter

the metropolitan museum of art, Edward C. Moore Collection, Bequest of Edward C. Moore, 1891 www.metmuseum.org
Mitsuhiro Ohara (1810-1875) shaped ivory into this cheerful round rabbit netsuke.  This big-eared bunny may not be the typical image of the Easter cottontail, but it is distilled essence of rabbit.
I hope you and yours are looking forward to Spring with your heads up likewise and your eyes bright.

Happy Easter, Museum friends!
