The Yoga Bunny, like much of my work, represents a hunger for serenity and beauty. It is different from my other work because it’s the only piece my wife ever requested personally. As any husband will tell you, making your wife happy is a sure path to your own serenity.
The Bunny is in the Warrior One yoga pose. In silent, suspended animation, he is in harmony with nature. He’s entered into a world of inner peace, far from anger, fear, and pain. He knows opening the senses leads to understanding. The anchor that allows him to hold the pose as long as needed is his inner peace.
