Pewter openwork pendant on tin-plated snake chain.
The picture of the three hares, joined by their ears, can be found in Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist cultures, separated by great distances and time: in British and European medieval churches, in a German synagogue, on Iranian metalwork, and in Buddhist temples from China’s Sui dynasty.
The hare symbolises femininity and fertility and is usually associated with the divine or magic.
The three hares are also thought to represent the Holy Trinity.
