Under the Moon

About this series

And the moon said “Hare, you must go now and deliver my message to the human race”. But lazy Hare would approach his task without due care, and today his noticable split lip is what he has left to show for angering the moon all those centuries ago.

Exploring the mythology and folklore of the animal kingdom from a time when man lived much closer them, we also look into how our relationships have changed and evolved whether it be how certain animals came to be respected or revered, or how Man’s Best Friend itself was not always a dog or a cat.
