This top depicts a rabbit dressed as a clown beating a drum. It is called “rabbit antics” because of the whimsical image of a rabbit pretending to be a clown. Hiroi-sensei made it in honor of the year of the rabbit.

Hiroi Michiaki: This is called “rabbit antics.” I made it in the year of the rabbit, so I made it a rabbit. The hands move in this kind of way. The hands are moving back and forth. When you spin this. Though really what the “rabbit antics” are is the rabbit is dressed as a clown.
