A few weeks ago I started a project I have been calling the Love Bunnies. The thought underlying this project is that symbols carry meaning and transmit energy. Symbols are often universal and are used to communicate ideas or concepts beyond language.
With spring in the air, I had rabbits on the brain. I was seeing them everywhere. So, I decided to create little rabbits to leave around town, as positive tokens, on Easter Sunday. The Love Bunnies were created to inspire joy and spread the language of love! 160 Love Bunnies were created, each with a bright brilliant heart and the word love, translated into a different language, on their back.
I made the Bunnies using plaster in silicone molds. The rabbits were then hand painted and later the heart and translation appliques were attached. Below are some of the production photos.
