Flight of the Hare

A popular weathervane from the portfolio, this version of the stylized hare is the fifth in the series.  And it's off to new it's home in New York!

The hare is photographed over the pine trees of the Duchy of Cornwall's Guy's Estate.  These managed woodlands boast dramatic views of the Golden Valley and are home to deer and pheasant. To get this view, we pulled on our wellies and tromped over a few fields dotted with hay bales. We could still see bits of snow on the Black Mountains.

The hare measures 28 inches long, and is designed to rotate over a fixed crescent moon. The overall design measures 31 inches tall.
