The demon bunny

I've picked this up at a vintage fair a couple of years ago, but never got round to posting about it. The red eyes are definitely a bit alarming - hence the nickname - but it's still strangely appealing.

It is made from some sort of plastic; the head is opaque, but the bottom part is slightly translucent.

The shape, and the animal head, reminds me of canopic jars; the containers used by the ancient Egyptians in the mummification process.

Fortunately mine just contains needles!
