Nailed to the cross and the chocolate rabbit (the easter bunny) was a very amusing cartoon in the Easter Echo.
‘What the f#*k has a rabbit got to do with it?’
The potential of 7Bn+ different interpretations may exist.
The symbol of the cross runs through human society with varying meanings. One is that a cross represents the four human senses: sight, hearing, taste, and smell, and that they converge at a centre representing a source, a centre in a human being.
The rabbit is known for its breeding habits, a sexual appetite. Chocolate is confirmed by many as a taste delight.
It can be said that the cross and the human being, united at the centre in inseparable union, is being distracted away from its centre by feeling and desire, for taste and sexual appetite.
The chocolate rabbit is a symbol of external experience and being nailed to the cross is the symbol of a human being’s potential.
A modern symbolic representation of the challenges for a human being to face in life. We can make a choice.
