August Market Poster

The hare with one ear for sale came about by thinking of the type of object that can turn up at a flea market ie. stuffed fox, old shoe, antique light bulb, original Albrecht Drurer drawing and so on, you really don't know what you're in for. There was an episode of The Simpsons where Homer picks up a violin in a flea market and reads the label on it "stradi-who-vious?" before flinging it into the rest of the pile, not realising he was holding a priceless stradivarious fiddle. The hilarity of it all is too much to fathom so I decided to turn Albrecht Drurer's famous drawing of a hare into a marketable object, the type that would look good on the shelf at home! I've seen the same hare for sale in an art gallery in Germany cast in a chocolate mould so someone's got there before me.
