The Rabbit by QueenDionne The Rabbit by QueenDionne
Ink and pencil crayon on 7" x 11" bristol.


Rabbit is a symbolic representation of the energy of the psychopomp. A psychopomp is a god or goddess (energy form) that acts as a liaison, and guide, between the three worlds- the physical earthly level that we dwell upon, the underworld and the heavens. Rabbit is well at home here on the earthly plane, of course. But he is also an Adept, comfortable in the Netherworld of underground tunnels and dark passages. His acute perception makes him sensitive to vibrations and energies that we often cannot comprehend. But in the "Underworld," those sensitivities are even more pronounced as sight is reduced to nil.

Symbolically, Rabbit in the Underworld is therefore representative of using one's intuition: knowing how to get around "in the dark" and being comfortable traveling in "unmarked territory." By default, it can also denote having or developing trust in the "Inner Light." Rabbit does not need an outside source to illuminate his way. His connection to the Collective Energy maintains his pathway.

An early mention that there is a rabbit on the moon appears in the Chu Ci, a Western Han anthology of Chinese poems from the Warring States period, which notes that along with a toad, there is a rabbit on the moon who constantly pounds herbs for the immortals.

Love this...both as an art and rabbit slave.  Thank you for choosing to represent the rabbit as something other than an animated stuffed toy.

I really like that you added a description about the rabbit, I wish more artists would take advantage of the ability to add narrative to their visual pieces. The colors are so lovely and fitting, I really enjoy this :heart:
