Rabbit in The MOON
月の兎 / 옥토끼
“Zhong Qiu Jie", which is also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. It is a time for family members and loved ones to congregate and enjoy the full moon - an auspicious symbol of abundance, harmony and luck. Adults will usually indulge in fragrant moon cakes of many varieties with a good cup of piping hot Chinese tea, while the little ones run around with their brightly-lit lanterns.
★Jade Rabbit / Moon Rabbit
The Moon rabbit in folklore is a rabbit that lives on the Moon, based on pareidolia that identifies the markings of the Moon as a rabbit. The story exists in many cultures, prominently in East Asian folklore and Aztec mythology.In East Asia, it is seen pounding in a mortar and pestle, but the contents of the mortar differ among Chinese, Japanese, and Korean folklore. In Chinese folklore, it is often portrayed as a companion of the Moon goddess Chang'e, constantly pounding the elixir of life for her; but in Japanese and Korean versions, it is pounding the ingredients for rice cake.

★這一隻白兔 B.J.D.作品 是 DIO太歲 於2010年所創作。原先是用作愛麗絲夢遊仙景 B.J.D.係例裡的白兔角色。但由於這隻白免的造形有別於一般B.J.D.兔仔而令很多娃友喜愛，所以決定將會以動物為主題的獨立系列推出。
