Item details

This Bali Bunny Bead in carved bone is sure to hop into your heart. The latest offering in my miniature menagerie, this listing is for one piece only but with two you could have yourself a cute pair of earrings for Easter.

The beads are hand-carved for me on the island of Bali, home of Indonesia's best carvers of bone, shell and horn.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

BACK STORY

Bali doesn't appear to have any bunnies, at least not indigenous ones, as best I can tell. However, domestic rabbits are kept as pets so are available for sale in pet shops.

Unfortunately, the ones I generally see in pet shop cages are lying sprawled out and hot in their little fur coats.

At the opposite end of the Indonesian archipelago, Sumatra has the world's only striped rabbit. One stripe runs from the tip of its nose down its back to its tail while there are other distinct, dark brown stripes down its sides.

Like so many wildlife inhabitants of Sumatra, it is now vulnerable to extinction because of the impact of human beings on its environment.

The word for 'rabbit' in Bahasa Indonesia is kelinci (the c is pronounced ch).
