(Y)ear of the Rabbit

This is my entry for a challenge for the art magazine “Thema” which has the theme for the spring issue, YOUR REALITY OR MINE.

I am using illusion and allusion for this composition. The illusion is given by the Chinese Shadow play and the allusion is at the Year of the Golden Rabbit 2011. The sign of metal.
