However, one decorative item in particular has caused a bit of a stir because of its posture:

According to 8world, the person who first posted the photo of the rabbit said it appeared "awkward" because it "looks like it's taking a dump".

A 55-year-old photography enthusiast told the Chinese news outlet that the bunny looks like it's "squatting over the toilet".

It seems that the complaints have been heard, as a more recent photo of the rabbit shows that is now partially obscured.

Not everyone had complaints about the rabbit, however, as 8world quoted a 63-year-old as saying that rabbits' feet look like that.

They continued, "It looks like a rabbit because [its legs] are curved. If it was standing straight, people would complain too."
