Hare Today Gone Tomorrow

Pete Tatham was commissioned by The Ernest Cook Trust to do one of the Hares for the charity fund raising Cirencester March Hare Trail 2017.
Whereas all the other artists in the 80 Hare show painted, decorated or produced mosaics on their hares, Pete Tatham completely reshaped the hare.
As the artist says, "With hare populations dwindling the idea was to emphasise the melancholic pose of the hare and give it a sense of fleeting appearance."
The piece is on display at the historic Mill in Cirencester until November 2017.
