Moon Bunny Netsuke PEM Puzzle - 300 Pieces


Piece together art from PEM's Collections! This precious little rabbit, made of ivory, was made by Naito Toyomasa and dates back to the late 18th to early 19th-century Japan. He recently served as inspiration for one of the museum’s downloadable coloring pages.

Japanese legend tells the story of the “bunny in the moon,” a symbol of perseverance and devotion. Representations of rabbits are a popular subject in Japanese art, especially for carved netsuke. Typically made of ivory, bone or wood, netsuke are small, often ornately carved toggles designed to attach small objects to the sash worn with a kimono.
