Zinc alloy pendant representing two hares at the foot of a tree, muzzle turned towards the moon, accompanied by a waxed leather cord adjustable from 51 to 56 cm.
This pendant is rich in symbols, hares (or rabbits), symbols of fertility, abundance and wisdom, at the foot of this tree which connects our material world to the spiritual world and whose branches come to touch the moon, symbol of Goddess.
The rabbit and the hare have since ancient times been considered symbols of fertility and abundance in many pagan cultures and held a prominent place in spring celebrations, marking the rebirth of nature and the return of nature. plenty.
It is not for nothing that Christians have taken up this figure and associated it with Easter, imposed to replace these pagan festivals.
The hare and the rabbit are also associated with the moon, living at night and gliding through the shadows as silent as a breath. Companions of Hecate, they constantly travel alongside her through the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, because the fertility of hares is so great that one might think they are immortal.
Initiated into the mysteries of this world by their particularity of being born with their eyes open, they are companions of choice and wise counsel for witches.
This is only a very small part of the very rich symbolism of the hare through the centuries, and I invite you to discover more because I have only discussed here what concerns Western culture. But the role of the hare is also extremely important and interesting in Asian and African legends.
