Three Hares ( Lime colourway)
This original multi plate lino print, signed by the artist is inspired by the beautiful British hare and the folklore about the three hares symbol.
This ancient symbol with the linked ears has been found in medieval churches and in pre Christian Buddhist caves . Hares symbolise the moon, fertility and spring and the last corn standing at harvest time. The Iceni Queen Boudica is supposed to have kept a hare under her cloak which she released as a form of divination to help victory in battle. These elements are explored within the detailed pattern and design of this print..
