I started making my Hare and Moon Potholders the day after the full Wolf Moon. I don’t remember if I spotted the hare first or the moon. But they wanted to be together.
It was only after I made them that I googled the words hare and moon and found the many myths from all over the world about them.
Some are similar but others are vastly different. Many have to do with how the hare ended up in the moon. Others are about the sacrifice of the hare. Rabbits are a good meal for many animals including us humans.
For me the Hare and The Moon feels like a winter story. Which I tried to capture in my potholders. I haven’t decided on which myth I like best yet.
