February 3rd 2011 is the year of the Metal Rabbit.
This is image is a nengajō card, which is a card Japanese people send to each other at the beginning of the new year.
I love these sorts of specific traditional customs and the images which serve them, not that I am one to get myself organized enough to participate in a tradition like this.
But I enjoy the sparse yet evokative technique shown here in this vintage card. You can see more these images here.
