Drawing, pencil and colored pencil on paper, 2009
I made this drawing to celebrate Easter, the sixth greatest holiday of the year. The drawing depicts an enormous family of bunnies preparing to hide colored eggs. With this piece, I posit that there are actually multiple Easter Bunnies working together rather than just one. It is highly unlikely that one Easter Bunny could hide so many eggs on one night without a lot of assistance. Why couldn't there be thousands of Easter Bunnies?
You'll notice that there are exactly 49 Easter Bunnies and 41 Easter eggs. There are likely multiple reasons for this, but the most obvious is the fact that if you multiply 49 by 41, you get 2009, which is the current year. 2009 is also the age of Jesus, give or take 10 years. If there are any numerologists out there, I'm curious to learn more about the meaning of the numbers 49 and 41 as they apply to Easter.
Update 2: This post can be enjoyed by the whole family.
