Of Birds and Bunnies

I explained briefly in a previous post that I was making a comic-format myth for my final project in Trevor Dodge’s Illuminated Manuscripts class.  I give you “The Dove and the Hare,” a tale for children.

In researching this project, I discovered that where we Westerners see a man in the moon, many other cultures worldwide saw a rabbit.  The dark spots on the surface of the moon represented a rabbit pounding corn in South America, a rabbit drumming in Japan, and even a rabbit holding an egg in Europe.  It being the month of Easter, I decided to write a story about how the rabbit and the egg came to be way up there on the moon (and how dinosaurs became extinct, incidentally).
