The moon gazing hare have a long history as a scared animal crossing religion and cultures for thousands of years all over the world. From a Cree legend telling the story of how the crane got its long legs and the red mark it wears upon its head, in Egypt hares were the messengers for the female moon deity, in Buddhist lore the likeness of the hare on the face of the moon is to honor the virtue of kindness; and that is just the beginning. There are more folklore stories and beliefs that can be found around the world. Thus, my moon gazing hare, Flopsy, an animal effigy, was born. Flopsy imbues the belief that hares would bring growth, re-birth, abundance, new beginnings, and fortune. So, as we enter the Year of the Hare I wish upon you amazing new beginnings, that your future is filled with happiness in your heart and that this little hare brightens your day.
