The Native Collection HARE

The Native Collection HARE

from 50.00

Description: The Hare (An Giorria Eireannach)
Inspired by our natural landscape, the Native Collection is tableware that has been lovingly hand-manufactured using home-grown, hardwood flaming beech. Adorned with original artwork by our sister Deirdre, it combines traditions both old and new to portray the beauty of Ireland.

The Irish mountain hare is one of Ireland’s longest established indigenous species of mammal. It is distinguished from the brown hare by having a stockier build, shorter ears and a white tail. The most well known reference to the Irish Hare was it’s presence on the Irish Half Penny.

Specific to Irish mythology, the hare is said to be a beautiful woman who can freely shape-shift into a hare. The cry of the banshee is also associated with the hare, as the hare’s cry is almost human like. In ancient Ireland the left hind paw of a cross eyed hare, which was shot with a silver bullet under a full moon, was used as a charm to ward off evil spirits.

Every oval HARE board has a beautiful, unique, natural grain.

Dimensions: 50 (l) x 20 (w) x 2 (h) cm
