Postcards: Hare Lady postcards
- Physical description:
- Six small postcards some with photographic images on them and some with reproductions of paintings on them.
- Museum classification:
- 10cm x 15cm
These six postcards were purchased in Salisbury in 2016. At that time, there was a large display of sculptures in front of Salisbury Cathedral by artists Sophie Ryder. The sculptures depicted several large people (mostly women) with hare heads. These postcards show similar works: painting and sculptures. The sculptures reminded Judith and Peter Hewitt (museum managers) of the wonderful Hare Woman statue by Lionel Miskin (Museum object 1144).
The postcards show:
Painting of a hare woman and a man with an ox head lying down together in a wood.
Painting of a hare woman and a man with an ox head embracing with dogs jumping up on them.
3 x photographs of statues showing hare woman crouching (original statue made from metal)
1 x photo of sculpture showing three hare women with three dogs (this was on display near Salisbury Cathedral in 2016).
