Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple of them, and pretty soon you have a dozen. ~~ John Steinbeck
Lunar Year, usually celebrated in East Asia, falls after the winter solstice and this time it is the year of the Rabbit or the Water Rabbit. Also, known as the Spring Festival, is the most celebrated of all Asian festivals.
The traditional Chinese calendar is based on astronomical observations of the Sun’s position in the sky and the Moon’s phases. The calendar is based on a 12-year cycle, with each year linked to one of the animals: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.
2023 is the Year of the Water Rabbit and those born in Water years are said to be creative and reflective. This very fact should prompt us to incorporate the rabbit motif in all the ways we can imagine.
Earlier none of them had gathered my attention as much as this time ‘The Water Rabbit’. I have curated a few images which can be added to our daily inspiration boards for anything and everything. Time to lift the mood with some fresh elements and discover our tiny little friends with short fluffy tails and long bunny ears.
Wallpapers are instant mood uplifters and a wonderful way to navigate design in children’s rooms.
Small little additions are always welcome in our daily lives to keep us inspired. It is not necessary that the change is always in a big form. As a creative person, I advocate the idea of being updated and keeping our spirits always inspired from either the past or present and the future.
Up and onwards to discover the Water Rabbit.
