(Yes, that's a one pence coin as a size reference. They're quite a teeny pair! )
I've always been fascinated by stories and myths about the sun and the moon...opposites and partners, caught in an endless chase across our sky. Then, as I was folding the Zodiac last month, the legend of the origins of the Zodiac came to mind. Cat and rat had been the closest of friends once upon a time until rat had betrayed his friend, and since that day they have been enemies.
Perhaps the sun and moon were best friends once, but now the sun rat flees as his once-upon-a-time friend, the moon cat, prowls after him...
Thank you for looking!

WOW that is so fantastic! I really love the shapes of them both and how you used gold and silver color! It really matches! The fact that they're both smaller than coins is so amazing and majestic! The detail is amazing!
Looks like you like making small models xD Isn't it quite hard? I mean, it's really cool but smaller than a coin Really nice job! Very nice colors and photographing again! It's great how you made those out of golden and silver paper, which makes it kinda shiny, and the starry background fits so well! Also it's amazing that it also contains a little story ^-^ And how the rat symbolises the sun and the cat symbolises the moon! And you have the coin again, to show how small it is ^-^
