Beautiful watercolor card arrived in Greece from Martha.

"the moon in daytime, a wondrous sight", indeed!

It has the most delicate colors...and image of the rabbit-in-the-moon!

Also these painted cut-out figures are amazing:

Always a joy to see this in my mailbox:

Thank you so much, Martha xxx

Yes, chinese, Japanese, many cultures...and:

"In the Buddhist Śaśajâtaka (Jataka Tale 316),[3] a monkey, an otter, a jackal, and a rabbit resolved to practice charity on the day of the full moon (Uposatha), believing a demonstration of great virtue would earn a great reward.

When an old man begged for food, the monkey gathered fruits from the trees and the otter collected fish, while the jackal wrongfully pilfered a lizard and a pot of milk-curd. The rabbit, who knew only how to gather grass, instead offered its own body, throwing itself into a fire the man had built. The rabbit, however, was not burnt. The old man revealed himself to be Śakra and, touched by the rabbit's virtue, drew the likeness of the rabbit on the moon for all to see. It is said the lunar image is still draped in the smoke that rose when the rabbit cast itself into the fire."

Nice bunny :-)
