Variegated copper sculpturing is a traditional metal craft endemic to Yunnan province and an item of national intangible cultural heritage. It involves a complicated hammering technique.
The Yunnan Nationalities Museum has a variegated copper rabbit in its permanent collection. The rabbit stands on a block with its ears pricking up. Delicate speckles of the metal alloy endow the rabbit with a marvelous texture. May the cute rabbit bring you vitality and happiness in the new year!
