Symbols - What does heaven look like
Part of the symbolism derives from a similar association with that found for ear piercing. It is an outward demonstration that a person can ‘hear’ the spirits in the spiritual world. But the main symbolism is that to be found in the symbol for a hare.
The big ears are in effect symbolically the same as having the twin horns. In effect a person with big ears, especially if they stick out a long way is a sort of 'god' a permanently enlightened being. They can also be thought of as a form of wings, but this is simply a reinforcement of the same idea.
