Artist's description:

I had been researching imagery for a commission, with particular reference to concepts of duality - night and day, sun and moon, etc. Frazier's Golden Bough is very useful on this subject and I came across the connection that links the hare as the earthly representative of the moon deity. Hence the image of the sitting hare encircled by the full moon. Having carved this part of the piece, I considered "What next?" - as I regularly carve fish shapes, along came some more with the image of the flaming eye borrowed from the votive eyes to be found in the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford. Then as I joined the two separate pieces of wood together, so came the resonance with the tri-grams of the I Ching.
