To celebrate Easter 2017, I decided to explore some of the online collections published by museums. As I am interested in re-using content, I tend to gravitate towards those institutions who open up their digitized collections for this purpose.
Rather than hunting for coloured eggs left behind by the Easter Bunny, I instead looked for the bunny itself, searching museum catalogues for interesting artefacts featuring rabbits or hares.
Below are just five of the fascinating objects I found, chosen to reflect a variety of cultures and a range of media.
