Description
Inspired by the lost world of the Celts, this striking wall plaque can be displayed indoors or in a sheltered spot out in your garden. The symbol of the 'three hares' is an ancient motif found across cultures, it is part of the shared heritage of Europe and Asia, with examples found in Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and Judaism, although the links between these cultures remain unclear. In Britain, the three hares appear in early Christian churches, possibly a recollection of earlier Insular Celtic designs such as the triskele, representing the Holy Trinity. The Celts adapted various pagan symbols when they converted to Christianity, the hare having been associated with fertility and the lunar cycle came to be associated with the Virgin and the triskele, which had possibly represented the infinite cycle of life, death and rebirth, symbolising the Holy Trinity. This striking wall plaque reflects the ancient motif as it appeared in early church carvings which can still be seen in Medieval churches in Devon.

This was a present for my brother-in-law's birthday and was delivered direct to him so we haven't seen the item yet, but he was absolutely delighted with it and we know it was hanging on his wall soon after it arrived. What's to add?

Such an attractive plaque with history and fable behind it. It could go indoors or out. My daughter and son in law received it from me for a housewarming present and were delighted with it.
