A golden belt buckle, dating to the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24), is designed in the shape of a rabbit. Its tail extends backward to form a hook. Under the abdomen of the rabbit, there is a round knob. The buckle can be split in half and joined together by mortise and tenon.

Unearthed from the M9 tomb of the tomb of the Marquis of Jiangdu at Dayunshan in Xuyi, Jiangsu province, this adorable belt buckle is part of the permanent collection of the Nanjing Museum.
