Cock  (one of 4)

Bunnies or, Hares ?
Japanese (?) mark

Hey, wait a minute ......
Are those rifle barrels poking out of the bushes?

Are these Fighting Cocks? 

 Is this a rare depiction of a historic battle found in a Grimm's Fairy Tale?  (or, "Ancient Chinese Mystery"?)

Please weigh in with facts you have that will help solve many of these questions.

Cheers!   Linda   :-)

    I just read the eggshell post. I am looking forward to seeing how that comes out!
