Rabbit Moon by kyoht Rabbit Moon by kyoht
Rabbits know what sacrifice is, and how it must happen in order for others to live. Inspired by the Japanese folk tale about the rabbit and the moon.

Magnificent. I would love to use it as an inspiration for an ekphrastic poem.

The curving movement of the rabbit mimics the curvature of the moon and gives a great sense of movement to the piece.
And the detail in the fur and background complete it perfectly; love this work.

My mother and grandmother told me the story of Usagi growing up... I have always seen him in the moon, and loved the tale. This piece is beautifully evocative of that story.

This reminds me of the work by the beautiful artist, Susan Seddon Boulet. If you're not familiar, I'd highly recommend checking her out. This is fantastic. There's a sweetness to the rabbit's eyes, yet it seems so wise and knowing...

Great work! :)

Oh I Love rabbits ^_^
However I like this work a lot because it shows the inner emotions of spirituality -- in my opinion when you see this work, you can also see the "deep emotional side" of this work. I totally adore this and love it. I also love the sketches and the compositions are balanced together. Great job on this one ^_^
