The Brown Hare

This sculpture of the brown hare was made by Stef Ottevanger of Reeth in North Yorkshire.
When I bought it she told me that she had been out walking early one Sunday morning when she had seen the hare. She quickly sketched it, went home and created this sculpture. I feel she has captured "hareness" quite remarkably. So many pictures, drawings or sculptures of the hare somehow miss the essence of the animal.
