A Friend of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic recently took some fantastic photos of the Museum's interior which she has shared with us.  Our favourite is one of the newly refurbished top gallery showing the fantastic hare lady statue by Lionel Miskin.

Talking about the imagery used in the piece he says; “...like the super-human animal headed Egyptian Gods, the black back for Night, the pale front for Day, the black Pluto figure in his Underworld womb......and the two dancers for the Music of existence...” From the Bunny Girl to shape-shifting witches, animal totems and underworld “spirit guides”, Lionel Miskin’s Hare-Woman contains numerous references to the enduring power and symbolism of the hare or rabbit and its many connections to witchcraft and magic.

This is one of the most popular and intriguing objects in our collection and looks great in the new display (and wonderful in this photo too!)
