Hare over the Flames

ACRYLIC ON CARD ~ 9.5″ x 8″ ~ 2014 ~ The inspiration for this painting grew out of the symbolism of the sacrificial hare, best described here: “Tradition in many parts of the world carries [the] linking of the hare with fire and burning. The sacrificial element is present in most of these universal traditions. . . . The hare, in other words, is like the phoenix, a symbol of regeneration or rejuvenation” (From The Leaping Hare by George Ewart Evans and David Thomson)
