Description: A trio of rabbits chase each other in an endless circle. The bunnies are set against a ring of tulip, daisy, and edelweiss shaped flowers.
Shown above is the Dreihasenfenster (Window of Three Hares) in Paderborn Cathedral.
The three hares (or three rabbits) symbol features three bunnies chasing each other in a circle. The design has a threefold rotational symmetry. Each of the ears is shared by two hares, so that only three ears are shown. It is thought to have a range of symbolic or mystical associations with fertility and the lunar cycle. When used in Christian churches, it is presumed to be a symbol of the Trinity.
Measurement: 3.5" (9 cm) in diameter
