Moon Rabbit Necklace

Designed by Kirsten 

In both East Asian and Native American folklore, markings on the moon are interpreted as a rabbit or hare. In East Asia, the rabbit is seen as pounding with a mortar and pestle – in China, the rabbit is pounding the elixir of life, in Japan and Korea the rabbit is seen as pounding rice for mochi. In Mayan art and inscriptions the Moon Goddess is often associated with a rabbit; in Aztec legend the god Quetzalcoatl was dying of thirst and hunger and a rabbit offered herself as sacrifice, so the god elevated her to the moon; and a Cree legend tells of a young rabbit who wanted to ride the moon and the stork that took him there. There is a deep cultural connection between rabbits and the moon, which this design aims to highlight!
