Hare Carving

I came across this beautiful ancient carving of a Hare on a pew in the Church of St Newlina, in St Newlyn East in Cornwall yesterday. It was quite dark in the church and quite by chance I put my hand on this very carving which has been worn smooth over the many years it has sat there. The church dates back to Norman times but I am not sure when the carvings were done.
