This print is inspired by the wonderful novel Watership Down by Richard Adams.
It's the story of a group of rabbits fleeing the on-coming destruction of their warren to find a new and safe place to live. During their adventures we learn about 'El-Ahrairah', the prince of all rabbits, and 'Frith' the sun god and creator of everything. El-Ahrairah is an arrogant and disrespectful rabbit but soon learns to worship the Frith when the sun god creates the weasel, the hawk and the fox to hunt and destroy El-Ahrairah's people.
It's a fabulous book everyone should read.
This print is in pale, rich gold and silver.
