Richard Cooper Bronze World of Bronze Limited Edition Large Hare Boxing by Michael Simpson
This is one of Michael Simpson’s larger sculptures of a Hare in the classic Boxing stance. You can see it stretching to full height, using its long legs to gain extra leverage, as it boxes its potential mate. In the Hare world suitors show their interest in what we might think of as aggression, but in fact no-one is hurt.
