Like others of my designs, this rabbit began with just a thought: I wanted to try my hand at a rabbit, which was neither too abstract or cartoonish. At the time (1991) I actually went through my origami library and counted more than 50 rabbit designs, but none of them captured the subject quite as I imagined it. So, what you see now is the result of my effort to make a rabbit that pleased me. While it is also partly abstract, I feel that it captures the form of a seated rabbit nicely.
