The original lithograph of this illustration says “Frohe Ostern” or “Happy Easter” in German. It’s not Easter, but the first day of spring and the two are inter-related.

Loving this lithograph today. I’t reminds me of our neighborhood on Tiger Mountain, surrounded by rabbits and big trees, and where I am able to connect with my colleagues online as if they’re sitting right next to me.

Take on the spirit and energy of this little rabbit – keep your space and your circle of friends. We can do both.

Open Access is a gift.

Share, remix and give credit to the museums who are sharing freely.

There’s so much to explore and create.
