Spirit of the Hare
The Spirit of the Hare by
Karen Cater. For a long time Karen has been intrigued by the
mystical Hare, springing up in visual images seemingly for
centuries, from boxing hares by the light of the moon to the
mysterious triple hare, the so called ‘Tinners’ Rabbits’ -
everywhere there were Hares.
In the wake of her
successful ‘Ogham Sketchbook’ (2007), Karen was determined to
discover why hares have held such fascination for creative
people and set out to explore their significance. Gradually
she uncovered a rich seam of mythology drawn from all over the
world, from earliest creation myths at the very dawn of time.
Almost everywhere, the Hare is the bringer of light and,
particularly in European traditions also symbolizes fertility.
After the witch hysteria of the 17th century had died down the
Hare became associated with bad luck, but its attraction has
persisted in latter-day folklore and beyond into modern
psychology. Legends came with stories, songs and images that
spoke to the deepest parts of Karen’s consciousness. Where
would they lead her? Her magical voyage of discovery unfolds
through the pages of her beautifully illustrated
Visit the hares that live in the fields around
Karen’s home. Experience the changing seasons of their life
and the changing fortunes and fashions that hares everywhere
have endured over the centuries, but above all, discover the
message that the hare has for us in the modern world; a
message of hope and a promise of peace.
