Japanese jewelry maker Ginza Tanaka has now put on sale a 2011 calendar made of 6 kilograms of pure gold featuring Miffy, the famous female rabbit from a series of picture books drawn and written by Dutch artist Dick Bruna. The solid gold calendar celebrates the 2011 Year of the Rabbit and is now on sale for 55 million yen (around $655,765). The character first appeared in a picture book launched by Bruna in 1955.
The calendar is 64 centimeters by 40 centimeters and is available online and at eight outlets of the company. Dick Bruna also attended the presentation and said that the calendar was the world’s most expensive Miffy item and he is glad that people are showing interest.
