Year of the Rabbit

 Canterbury Buttermarket with Christchurch Gate left, next to the Cathedral Gate Hotel on Burgate used for this model. Peter Livesey.

 Fourth in the 12 year cycle, rabbits are a lucky sign. They are said to be private, quiet and likeable, enjoying the company of friends and entertaining. Lanterns are lit for all signs at the Chinese New Year.

This Spice and Lantern Emporium is the first in a Hazle series based on UK China Towns. Each ceramic features one of twelve zodiac animals that mark each Chinese New Year. The rabbit below is actually a hare, as China has no native rabbits but seven hare species!
