Rabbit Pair Netsuke (LACMA Reproduction)


Member Price

Our Rabbit Pair reproduction netsuke rabbits are so happy to be together here on earth. But if you look closely at the moon, you may see the rabbit who lives there. The Japanese believe that he is at home up there, busy making mochi, a delicious rice-based treat. The rabbit is the fourth animal in the Chinese zodiac. 

Netsuke were used as both toggle and counterweight to help suspend hanging purses or boxes from the sash of a man's kimono. This is a hand-painted reproduction of an original netsuke from mid- to late 19th century Japan in LACMA’s Raymond and Frances Bushell Collection.
