Is the main hero of many tales from all over the World. Is celebrated in many Cultures as Clever, Unpredictable and a Trickster. In Asia the rabbit is the symbol of longevity. In ancient Egypt it was celebrated as "feminine power" and in Germanic tribes as the the fertility Goddess (Eostre) which later was morphed into the Easter bunny in our Culture. Some Native American tribes referred to the rabbit as the Fear Caller, one projecting its fear of those wishing to eat it, and thereby attracting the predators it fears while others consider the great hare, Manabozho, a trickster God.
