The Moon rabbit or Moon hare is a mythical figure who lives on the Moon. The folklore originated in China and then spread to other Asian cultures. In East Asian folklore, the rabbit is seen as pounding with a mortar and pestle. In Japanese and Korean versions, the rabbit is pounding the ingredients for mochi or some other type of rice cake.
Daniel Mackie is the artist behind The DM Collection. This series of watercolours is heavily influenced by the Japanese print makers of the Ukiyo-e period, which flourished between 1670 and 1870. Ukiyo-e was central to forming the West’s perception of Japanese art in the late 19th century, particularly the landscapes of Hokusai and Hiroshige. Like these great masters Daniel seeks to create a harmonious accord between a highly stylised form and the flowing lines of nature, creating decorative designs that lift the spirit and warm the heart.
