Roof boss

Ben

This replica church roof boss decoration shows three hares or ‘Tinner’s Rabbits’, a popular motif in the West Country. The hares have three interlocking ears which are arranged so that whichever one you look at seems to have both ears! It is meaningful to me as I bought it at Tewkesbury Abbey (Gloucestershire) during a day trip there with a friend, just one week before the first lockdown (March 2020). It reminds me of a happy day out and what life was like before Covid restrictions.
