Coloured early variation

The Three Hares is not found in the medieval bestiary but much like The Pelican in her Piety it is a common motif in medieval church carvings. Its meaning is something of a mystery and depictions of it in medieval art have been found as far west as Devon, England and as far East Dunhuang, China.

This image was the only one cut from a lino plate while the others have been made to look like linocuts. The plate itself was about 11 inches in diameter which is pretty colossal for a linocut and was extremely time consuming to make prints hence why the others are digital and only made to look like linocuts!
