Canada to Launch Rabbit Stamp

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Canada rabbit stamp

In celebration of the upcoming Year of the Rabbit, Canada Post is launching a beautiful new stamp January 7, 2011.  The design, which emulates a Chinese embroidery style, features the front part of a rabbit hopping behind the feet of another. When the stamps are side by side, they line up so the rabbits “chase” each other in the chain.

Teeniest Rabbit Sculpture

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Tiny rabbit figurine by Chen Forng-shean

If you use a microscope, you can just barely make out a rabbit eating a carrot in a resin figurine created by Taiwanese artist Chen Forng-shean.  The sculpture, made in honor of the upcoming Chinese Year of the Rabbit, is .02 inch long and sits atop an eye of a needle.  It’s 1/20th the size of an average grain of rice. It’s also delicately painted.

When Chen Forng-shean isn’t creating teeny tiny sculptures, he works at Taiwan’s Central Engraving and Printing Plant as a money printing plate designer.

For more info about the miniature rabbit sculpture, see: NTD Television.

To see more of Chen Forng-shean’s work, see: International Exhibition of Calligraphy.

Bunny Sculptures

Monday, December 21st, 2009

“To Thine Own Self Be True” is the title of Park Ad-jong’s new solo show in South Korea. The show features sculptures of rabbits and eggs.

In an interview with the Korean Times, Park describes her choice of rabbits as a subject,


When people talk about bunnies, they think of rebirth. Bunnies make a lot of babies, so it’s about new beginnings. For me, bunnies represent new life. And this is the same for me, it’s about starting over and rebirth.

The sculptures came out of a rough time for Park, who had legal problems and trust issues with coworkers.

The exhibit runs through December 31 at the Art Link Gallery in Seoul.
