Statue of a girl holding a hare, inspired by the Welsh Legend of Melangell. The young girl was of a noble Irish  family and her parents wanted her to marry someone she didn’t love. Melangell fled into the wilderness to escape, and lived there for years. A prince was hunting a hare near Melangell’s home, and discovered a beautiful woman with the hare he was pursuing hiding in the mantle of her garment. The prince was sympathetic to her plight, and granted her lands and a monastic settlement, of which she became abbess.

I wanted to show Melangell living somewhere inhospitable, with long grasses and a bleak sunset. She is a statue, as she is long dead, but the hare is very much alive.
