This delightful feature from AP Limited Editions is a labor of love that tells the story of a cherished moment of fantasy shared between a grandma and her little grandson; two rabbits aspiring to join others on a faraway moon and contemplating the best way to get there!

The story is explored through exciting combinations of Maki-e techniques with interesting contrasts and details. The cosmos with moon, stars and planets is created in togidashimaki-e using gold and silver hirame and seashell bits. The earth section with mountains and trees is crafted in togidashimaki-e with gold, silver, and blue gold powder. Wild plants and flowers spring to life in takamaki-e and hiramaki-e; the perfect backdrop for the grandma and grandson rabbit pair adorned to perfection in nashiji and eggshell, who wait in silent anticipation of their exciting journey to the moon!
