Fauna - Tinner's rabbits
Hares (and some rabbits) in and out of folklore. The "Tinner's rabbits" refers to the running hare triskele which appears in many Devon churches, usually as a roof boss, and was associated with the stannary towns (hence "tinner's"). The symbol is much older, though, and can be found in many places along the Silk Road, eventually arriving in Europe. The hare itself is rich in symbolism, associated with paganism, the Christian trinity, and the Jewish cabbala.
