Funny Bunny

Or maybe not so funny.  To some, this bunny cookie jar looks menacing and plotting, adding drama wherever he is.  

Here's what makes this bunny so special: as well as being ironic, it's a limited art piece.  

Designed by Japanese artist Momoyo Torimitsu, this bunny is a large scale object specifically intended as a commentary on Japanese small living spaces, a sort of size protest, if you will.  It's also an art multiple, meaning only 1,000 of each color was produced.  So once they're gone, they're gone.  This is perfect for the Japanese anime fan in your life, or a fledgling art collector.

He's also reminiscent, in U.S. circles, of the cult film Donnie Darko (one of my personal favorites).  And, he just looks great hanging around in just about any kitchen, spreading his lapinesque vibe.

You can find him just an online hop, skip, and a jump away at
