    A week or so ago Kevin (kwqd) posted a dear little wooden cat from Japan.
    This is my mouse. Well, I think it's a mouse, sans tail.
    I love the battuto look caused by the artist's chisel, her dear little feet, ears and whiskers, and the painted on dot eyes and nose.
    I found this in a fascinatingly stuffed second hand shop in Chitose, for very few yen. I spent hours in that shop and wished I could carry more home from there!
    My mouse was a pleasure to bring home.
    About 5cm high.

      These Japanese animals are so quirky and likeable, though the ears make me think of a rabbit? He's very sweet though!
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 months ago
      Cute AS !!!.!.!!!
    3. Newfld Newfld, 7 months ago
      Absolutely adorable face and wonderful chiseled wood body

      Fat Baby rabbit, wonderful carving with one chunk of fine wood. Thanks Karen, I wish I could follow your interesting ventures.
    5. kwqd kwqd, 7 months ago
      Love it! Love the way they left the carving marks in it. Great details, fat folds over the front feet, etc. Leaning toward bunny, too, though. Thanks for posting, Karen!!
    6. elanski elanski, 7 months ago
      I thought maybe it was a rabbit. It is very cute.
    7. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      OK the consensus is in: rabbit not mouse!

    8. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      Thanks Lauren.
      I think the Japanese in general love making characterful animals, and of cours3 they love cute!
    9. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      True that Kevin.
      Thanks!

      It is adorableJenni, like many of your glass menagerie.
      Thanks for loving her.
    11. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      As you know Lisa Japan offers so much, including little handcraft items like this.
      I will go back as soon as life and finances allow.
      Thanks for the love!

      She is a very different style to your cat, Kevin, but they both show the skill and emotion of a talented wood worker.
      Isn’t it lovely to hold such sweet things?
      Thanks mate.
    13. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      Thanks Elanski for your love and rabbit vote.
      So glad you enjoyed seeing her.
    14. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 7 months ago
      How sweet and fun!
    15. racer4four racer4four, 7 months ago
      I'm glad you love her Elisabethan.
      Thanks!

      Such an adorable little critter!
    17. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 6 months ago
      This is an adorable.....baby rabbit?
      Baby Rabbits are born “sans tail”
      The master craftsman who carved this cutie paid special attention to her work...
      It’s wonderful!
      ( my Son wants to go to Japan, loves everything Japanese)
    18. racer4four racer4four, 6 months ago
      Thanks Glassiegirl!

      Thanks too Eileen, and yes I agree now, probably a rabbit kitten. It's a cutie and I still enjoy it and remembering where I found it!
    19. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 6 months ago
      Karen, you are too cute! This wooks wike a wittle wabbit to me!!! haha. I love it. I think they just know how much joy the little things like this bring such huge joy to all and I'm so grateful to you for teaching what you know, except for calling a rabbit a mouse of course!!! hahaaha… you know I love you ta pieces!!! But that was funny!!!
    20. racer4four racer4four, 6 months ago
      I never said I was an expert on mammals Sue! I want it to be a mouse, even if it is a wabbit.
      Very cute mouse, sans tail, rabbit ears, but not a rabbit!
      Ok?
      Oh, not ok.
      No matter.
      I will still call it mouse under my breath.
    21. truthordare truthordare, 6 months ago
      OOOHHH! Poor Warren, don't get upset, it is whatever you want, it's yours, don't listen to us, what do we know after all...... nothing according to some......lol. Have a good day down under. Weepy Wisa.

      OMG, this {mouse/rabbit} is utterly adorable, chunky and innocent-faced!

      (I am OK with it being a mouse. Mice don't get enough love. Maybe it's sitting on its tail ;)
    23. racer4four racer4four, 6 months ago
      I'm glad you have voted mouse Rhineisfine, they are cuter than rabbits for me :))
      It's so cute I agree. For me only the Japanese seem to have a cultural connection to the cute. Kawaii rules!
