why there’s a rabbit on the moon – part 22

rabbit on the moon

To this day, if you look closely, you can still see them together, companionably pounding the elixir of immortality.

Epilogue:
Houyi died shortly after of rage – that’s what they called a heart attack back then – thereby proving the ancient saying that “a tyrant never choses his own death”. The people rejoiced and vowed never to have a king again… until the next time.

Here it is – the final image for “why there’s a rabbit on the moon”! I hope you had as much fun reading as I had producing the story. By-the-way, the ancient saying I quote here, was quoted in the Tao Te Ching as an already ancient saying, see verse 42.

    I love this image: when I first looked, I saw only random shading…..they the images appeared. Beautiful!

    • Thank you! I appreciate it because I actually found it difficult to realize this one the way I wanted… in the end I started with a photo of the moon and drew on top of it. It is the only manipulated photo on the blog to date.
