The Shengxiao Lunar Collection began in 2014 and features a new animal design each year based on the Chinese calendar. This year celebrates the fourth animal of the lunar cycle, the beloved rabbit. Known for its compassion and intelligence, the rabbit is seen by many as the luckiest of the twelve lunar animals. This is partly because the moon goddess Chang’e chose the rabbit as her pet. Only a truly deserving and noble creature would receive this honor, which puts the rabbit in an esteemed position among its peers.
