  rabbit on the moon

 

Thailand

A dark spot on the surface of the moon (fig.) has the contours of a rabbit, and is the symbol of Chanthaburi, the Moon City (fig.). Move the cursor of your computer over the picture (on mobile device press, i.e. single tap and hold, and then release) to reveal the rabbit's contours. In Chinese mythology, this rabbit is known as the Jade Rabbit and is believed to prepare a herbal Elixir of Immortality.
