Netsuke: Brown Bunny
Gentle and perfectly calm, this Netsuke bunny is carved from a soft reddish-brown boxwood and has long, tapered ears that she's quite proud of...
She's an excellent listener and, at a compact 1 1/2" tall and 1 5/8" wide, makes an excellent bedside companion who'll listen intently to your worries while also gently reminding you to focus on your blessings.
Netsuke has evolved from the 17th century Japanese art of carving intricate beads called ojime from bone, stone, wood or ivory. These beads were used to close off clothing and pouches and over the centuries the art of carving intricate miniatures has made netsuke highly collectible. Netsuke can be found in fine museums and galleries all over the globe and carvings often feature the animals or mythic creatures that make up the Asian zodiacs.
