Gentleman Rabbit with Letter (circa 1890-93). Beatrix Potter (English, 1866-1943). Watercolor. Courtesy of Sotheby’s.
The rabbit is not the famed Peter Rabbit that Potter is most recognized for, but an unnamed rabbit wearing a tail-coat, waistcoat, staff, and hat. While this was unpublished at the time it was created, the Beatrix Potter Society did reproduce it at a later date. Potter is the beloved author of many children’s books including “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”, which stars her most famous character.
13 year old Ashol Pan is one of the estimated last 250 Mongolian eagle hunters left in the world. And one of the very few women that are granted the privilege to be trained in this ancient, traditional hunting method. Golden eagles are used mainly to hunt foxes during the winter months.
