A Fairy Tale With Three Rabbits

Three shadow rabbits, one shadow grandma, heads only, and a fine Japanese bowl, the world writ small. The bowl, by way of Kyoto, is reminiscent of the brilliantly graphical lines of Keith Murray's designs for Wedgwood from the '30's and onwards. Murray, New Zealand's exemplar designer.  Murray's keen sense of form, his elegantly stylised geometry, might or might not be referenced in this technically tour de force thrown off so precisely by Yoshinori Ohno.  The only tricky question with this is getting your attention back from the lovely and precise game the shadows play.
