The myth of the hare-in-the-moon is almost universal and goes back to ancient times. The hare is always an attribute of lunar deities and can symbolise fertility. The hare was important to the early Britains; Boadicea would release a hare at the beginning of each new campaign against the Romans. Today hares can be seen, as indeed they would have to our ancestors, silhouetted against the evening sky line in this very "moon-gazing" pose.
This 3.5cm tall Moon Gazing Hare is made from resin that has an antique bronze finish. It is supplied in a clear box with double-sided information card.
