Hares feature in the mythology of many cultures across the world; usually associated with fertility and are even seen in the pattern of dark patches on the moon. They certainly are fascinating creatures and lovely to see when wild.
This linocut of a hare is one of a pair. I made them using traditional linseed oil lino blocks, cut with a reverse design, then inked with top quality oil pigment and printed onto Japanese hand made paper using an antique Victorian Colombian press. They are the first in an occasional series of linocuts based on original drawings of British wildlife.
