Happy Easter!


Running Rabbit Stoneware Bas Relief Plaque (LEO Design)


Happy Easter!

And a Blessed Ramadan and Passover, too.  This week, all three Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity, Islam—simultaneously celebrate their important annual holy days, a coincidence which only happens approximately once every 30 years.

For Christians, Easter commemorates the fundamental belief that Jesus rose from the dead, thus saving the World. Easter marks the end of the 40 day Lenten Journey of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  With Passover, Jews celebrate their covenant with God—and His deliverance from from their slavery in Egypt.  Muslims observe a month of fasting, prayer and good works, a regimen of sacrifice, discipline and spiritual cleansing.  In all three religions, prayer, fasting and almsgiving (or good works) play a critical role in preparing one to better encounter God.  Indeed, other (non-Abrahamic) religions employ these same disciplines to seek spiritual readiness.

Our little running bunny, shown above, is fashioned in bas relief stoneware.  A hanging wire allows it to be easily mounted on the wall.  Or, it can be incorporated into a larger tilework project—for a year 'round reminder of Spring Joy.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
