Very nice rabbit under some maple leaves, entirely made in Japanese fabric.
The rabbit rocks but never falls and therefore it is the symbol of constancy and perseverance.
This lucky charm is inspired to the Japanese proverb "Fall seven times, get up eight".
The rabbit is the protagonist of many mythological legends and Japanese folklore.
One of the most famous is that of the Lunar Rabbit. Legend has it that the rabbit lives on the moon
and its image can be seen in the hollows of the lunar surface only during full moon nights.
In these nights you succeed to see the rabbit with a kitchen pestle.
The story begins with a traveler tired and hungry, at some point on his journey
he arrives in a wood where he meets a monkey, an otter, a jackal and a rabbit.
The first three animals they help him get food.
Only the rabbit, with no special skills apart recover some grass, he can't bring anything to the traveler.
So he decides to to offer himself as a meal, to prepare the fire and to throw himself into the flames.
The traveler, who is actually the Hindu deity Sakna, is so impressed by the gesture of generosity of the rabbit,
who decides to immortalize his image on the surface lunar, so that everyone can admire it.
The rabbit is therefore the symbol of sacrifice and of generosity.
