Hare Form

Hare Form

With hares being one of my favourite creatures, I was delighted to be asked to carve this one ~ almost-life-sized, sitting on a base. The mythology and folklore surrounding hares is fascinating and only adds to the attraction of this mystical animal, and this has spread worldwide over centuries ~ often with a link to the moon.

I carved this chap from a sweet-chestnut log, which looked lovely in the sun when oiled.
