A scary Happy Easter! Greetings Cards pt 1
Recurring themes of eggs, rabbits and chicks are used in these vintage greetings cards (as in many Easter cards) to symbolise new and abundant life, referring to the rising of Jesus from the tomb in the christian public holiday of Easter. Somehow these cards manage to make it seem like a creepy celebration, and not the innocent and joyful one it is intended to be!!! Chosen for comedic effect!
And here a perversely friendly halloween card! This uses some of the traditional Halloween symbols of Pumpkin Heads, black cats, moons and bats, to represent death and evil spirits and the warding off thereof!
