The Three Hares
A team of researchers came knocking on the door of Paignton Church yesterday, which we are currently renovating.They were on the hunt for an extremely rare motif, found in only 20 churches across the world including China and Russia.
The motif, three hares running in a circle sharing three ears which form a triangle at the centre of the design, is a paradox, for although only three ears are depicted each beast appears to have two.
The motif was spotted by our Site Foreman, Mark Valentine.
