Item Description

Artist: Roberta Jeffries

Sponsor: Emmanuel Episcopal Church

Lepus is an ancient constellation that has been pictured as a hare hunted by Orion. One story tells of how Lepus was once a bird who was changed into a hare by Ostara, the Goddess of Spring. Once a year the hare was allowed to lay eggs, and thus, the origin of the Easter Bunny! The word Easter is derived from Ostara and we have our Celestial Easter Bunny.
