Easter Images And Their Meaning
Easter like other holidays is represented by different images. When we see these images, we are immediately reminded of the holiday that they represent. An example is the image of Santa Claus that immediately brings to mind the Christmas holiday.
Easter images have different kinds but they all represent or symbolize the Easter holiday. When we see these Easter images we immediately know that they represent Easter Sunday.
Different Easter Images And Their Meaning
The Easter Bunny
The Easter bunny is the most common and famous of the Easter images. They are used to decorate malls, stores and homes. When you receive a greeting card with Easter images of a bunny in front of it, you immediately know that it is an Easter holiday greeting card. Easter images using the Easter bunny usually show the bunny holding a basket filled with eggs.
According to the legends, the Easter bunny carries around a basket filled with candies, colored eggs and also toys. The Easter bunny goes to the homes with children and gives away the goodies in his basket the night before Easter Sunday. Easter images also use the bunny because this animal symbolizes the fertile earth during the vernal equinox.
Bunnies are known to be very fertile animals because they give birth to huge litters during the spring. Easter Sunday also falls during the spring season when the earth is most fertile. Another symbolism of the Easter bunny is that it symbolizes the new start on life given by Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection.
The Easter Egg
Another of the popular Easter images is the Easter eggs. Eggs are used to represent Easter because of the life that they carry inside them. The chick inside the eggs can break open the shell and come alive. This is very similar to the way Jesus emerged from the tomb and walked out with new life.
The egg is also said to symbolize the stone that covered the tomb of Jesus. The history of the Easter eggs says that they were painted in vibrant colors that symbolize the vibrant colors of spring.
Easter images also include images of chicks. This is because chicks symbolize new life or rebirth. This is the same as the new life when Jesus was resurrected on Easter Sunday. The new life represented by the chicks is also symbolic of the new life that is abundant during the spring.
Butterflies are one of the best Easter images that represent rebirth or new life. Before becoming a butterfly, the caterpillar transforms into a chrysalis and appears to die. It remains wrapped inside the cocoon for a period of time. While inside the cocoon, it does not move and looks like it is already dead.
After some time, the caterpillar emerges from the cocoon as a magnificent butterfly. The death and the new life of the butterfly are similar to the death and resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. As the butterfly emerges from the cocoon it is given new life that is even more beautiful.
