The Psychopomp, 2009 48cm x 31.5cm acrylic and charcoal on 65lb paper
Rabbit is an Earth symbol, by virtue of the fact that he is so close to the ground, and lives partially in the ground itself. He could convey, symbolically, a need to center oneself more, for instance. He could also imply stodginess, for that matter, a sort of “stuck in the rut” kind of energy that happens to us all at times.
Rabbit is also a symbol of the archetypal “Trickster” in world mythologies.
