Inspired by the profound sentiments of Richard Adams' "Watership Down," this enamel pin beautifully encapsulates Hazel's touching words, "My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today." This quote, sparked by Bigwig's seeming end, touches upon the inevitable nature of death, where in their lore, the "Black Rabbit of Inlé" stands as its embodiment. The idea is when one rabbit's journey ends, they join countless souls who've moved on, embodied in the words, "joined the thousand."
This isn't just a pin. For many, it stands as a symbol of comfort, a memento of undying love, and the timeless connection that outlives even death. ♥️🐈⬛🐕
