Hare family

Group of three bronze hares with black patina, partially chiselled.

Two hares resting on their four legs, the third trained on its hind legs.

In Japanese, the hare and the rabbit are designated by a single word: usagi. The hare occupies an important place in Japanese legends and superstitions. Like many other animals, it is supposed to reach a fabulous age and become blue at five hundred years old.
