- Rabbit Art Eostre Hare is apart of my ongoing Celtic Mythology Series
Firstly in Celtic Mythology Eostre is a goddess associated with the moon, fertility, & spring. Along with mythic stories of death, redemption, and resurrection during the turning of winter to spring. In Northern Europe, Easter imagery involves hares and rabbits. Most importantly Eostre shape-shifts, taking the shape of a hare at each full moon; all hares are sacred to her, and act as her messengers.
She depicts with a hare’s head or ears, and with a white hare standing in attendance. Most famously this magical white hare lays brightly colored eggs which everyone give out to children during spring festivals. An ancient tradition that survives in the form of the Easter Bunny today.
Therefore Celtic peoples look at the hare as a creature of the otherworld with supernatural powers. Subsequently, this creature is admired for strength, speed and was noted for being active at night and associated with the moon.
Moreover In Celtic tradition, the hare is sacred to the Goddess and is the totem animal of lunar goddesses such as Hecate, Freyja and Holda. The hare is a symbol for the moon.
