Sergey Falkin likes to create sculptures – ” jokes”: works of stone, which, like chameleons, have several images at the same time, or can have an unexpected utilitarian purpose in addition to the aesthetic. Thus, the stone sculpture turns out to be not just the author’s artistic plastic reading of the hare’s image, but also…a shot glass!

 

The noble gentle honey-milk, lunar color of jade creates an association with the eastern legend of the moon hare. In Taoist art, such a hare is depicted mixing in a mortar the elixir of longevity or immortality.

 

Filled with festive drink jemstone-carved moon hare can not be put on the table without emptying to the bottom for longevity, happiness and prosperity in the New Year!
