Of all the animals, the hare has perhaps always had the most intriguing and mystical qualities. For many, it has come to represent an intermediary between the physical and spiritual world. This hare is based on a mosaic found by archaeologists in the floor of a Romano-Celtic villa in Cirencester. Inscribed into the tile are the words, attributed to the classical poet Virgil, ‘Stat Fortuna Domus’ which can be translated as ‘Good Fortune to this House’. This combination of an actual Roman design with a Latin motto makes a perfect and unusual wall hanging for any house.
