The Rabbit’s Here.


2011: The Year of the Rabbit


The Rabbit comes from a famous 12th Century “Frolicking Animals Scroll” (鳥獣戯画).  The original now stays in the Tokyo National Museum, while a replica is housed at it’s home temple, Kyoto’s Kozan-ji Temple.

The scroll’s Rabbit is on his back, laughing uproariously.  A classic image.  I’ve taken the liberty to turn the image 90 degrees, which transforms the Laughing Rabbit into a Very Determined Rabbit.  See the attachment and see for yourself.  I’d like to believe that we can, indeed, Laugh at both pretensions and setbacks and frustrations the like, and be determined and resolute.
