The Easter Bunny is not a bunny or rabbit at all, but is actually a hare, the sacred animal of Eostre (or Oestra/Ostara), the ancient Teutonic Goddess of the Spring Moon. At the vernal equinox (March or April) the hares go ‘mad’ and at this time of year, one of Eostre’s hares laid an egg, the Egg of New Life, or the “Easter” Egg.

Ostara (1884) by Johannes Gehrts. The goddess flies through the heavens surrounded by Roman-inspired putti, beams of light, and animals. Germanic people look up at the goddess from the realm below.
Ēostre or Ostara (Northumbrian Old English: Ēostre; West Saxon Old English: Ēastre; Old High German: *Ôstara) is a goddess in Germanic paganism who, by way of the Germanic month bearing her name (Northumbrian: Ēosturmōnaþ; West Saxon: Ēastermōnaþ; Old High German: Ôstarmânoth), is the namesake of the festival of Easter. Ēostre is attested solely by Bede in his 8th-century work De temporum ratione, where Bede states that during Ēosturmōnaþ (the equivalent to the month of April) feasts were held in Eostre’s honor among the pagan Anglo-Saxons, but had died out by the time of his writing, replaced by the Christian “Paschal month" (a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus).

HH:  Fairy Babies dropping from the sky - now that’s a fertility goddess.  Hanging with the stork too - more fertility symbols.

'The Vision Of Valhalla' by Charles Robinson (1870–1937)
Description: In Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja’s field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as Einherjar, as well as various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök… Valhalla has inspired various works of art, publication titles, popular culture references, and has become a term synonymous with a martial (or otherwise) hall of the chosen dead.

Rik Garrett - Symbiosis (2010-11)

Artist’s statement: 

"An integral concept of Alchemy is ‘Solve et Coagula’ – dissolve and combine.  This is the secret key to manifesting the Philosopher’s Stone, Elixr of Life and immortality. This ideal is represented with the image of the Rebis – a two-headed hermaphrodite that holds the assets of both genders."
