This paper cutting is of wild plum thickets in the hills of southwestern Iowa. The two left panels indicate daytime and the two right panels, night. The rabbit pictured pounding rice in the moon is from a Japanese fairy tale. In Japan the plum blossom is the "gentle" flower, favored by poets and scholars.

This piece may be opened in a zigzag, to be seen from one end to the other. A rabbit-eye view can be seen by setting it folded, at eye level, and opening it slightly. It is more interesting with light above or behind it.
