Hop Art: Dancing Hares, A Bronze Sculpture Featuring 3 Giant Rabbits

Today in rabbit-themed art: “Dancing Hares“, a bronze sculpture depicting three oversized bunnies busting a move and doing their best take on ’80s dance craze, the Roger Rabbit. Designed by Sophie Ryder, an artist based in London, the piece is currently installed at a public park in Dublin, Ohio.

From the artist’s statement:

Sophie Ryder lives in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside where hares are a native and prolific species measuring 24″ when sitting with ears upright. She became enthralled with the hares annual spring courtship — standing erect and “boxing” each other for mates and territory; hence the phrase: “Mad as a March Hare.”
