In celebration of the upcoming Year of the Rabbit, Canada Post is launching a beautiful new stamp January 7, 2011. The design, which emulates a Chinese embroidery style, features the front part of a rabbit hopping behind the feet of another. When the stamps are side by side, they line up so the rabbits “chase” each other in the chain.

If you use a microscope, you can just barely make out a rabbit eating a carrot in a resin figurine created by Taiwanese artist Chen Forng-shean. The sculpture, made in honor of the upcoming Chinese Year of the Rabbit, is .02 inch long and sits atop an eye of a needle. It’s 1/20th the size of an average grain of rice. It’s also delicately painted.
When Chen Forng-shean isn’t creating teeny tiny sculptures, he works at Taiwan’s Central Engraving and Printing Plant as a money printing plate designer.
