Hares remain one of Hamish’s signature subjects which he regularly returns to. This is partly to see how his sculpting style has changed over the years, but also because, as he says,”hares just lend themselves so well to sculpture!”
Hares Monumental is a sculpture bursting with life and energy. Three times life size, it is designed to be silhouetted side on. It makes a stunning focal point as it really holds its ground from a distance.
Happily, brown hare numbers are recovering in line with increased cereal production and modern day farming methods adopting agri-environmental schemes. This sculpture is a majestic tribute to one of our countryside’s most beloved animals.
