Luna Hare will be a new light and sound installation created by the young people of Gilsland and Haltwhistle.
The Myth of the Moon Gazing Hare reflects ancient beliefs. Pagans believed that seeing a moon gazing hare would bring growth, re-birth, and abundance, new beginnings and good fortune. The Hare is also symbolic of our relationship with the land and identified with our need to temper our use of the natural environment. Whether or not hares really gaze at the moon is not known, but it is certainly an animal who is usually most active in twilight hours and on during the shortest days of the month .
