The 3 Celtic Hares is a mythical motif dating back thousands of years. The symbol of these rabbits attached by an ear was first found in the 6th or 7th century in cave temples in China, as a Buddhist symbol, and it has since been discovered in religions and regions around the world, from the Middle East and Asia to Europe. Its precise meaning is unknown, but it has been interpreted to mean peace and tranquility, fertility, and the lunar cycle. Hand-carved sgraffito to resemble wood-cut. 11" x 11"
