Alleni Taking Aim
25″ x 18″ x 9″
Historically, it seems like rabbits have been portraid as meek, passive creatures, something afraid of human contact…but not in New Mexico. The large jack rabbits that I see around Santa Fe are nothing but fast, sleek, intelligent and sometimes scary. I often stumble on them while hiking, some are brown and white, some black and white.
I have started thinking of them as tricksters, especially when it comes to interacting with humans. Once my back is turned, I figure they can do just about anything to us!
Alleni, the about rabbit, has a large, heavy wooden croquet ball. He does not seem timid as he looks around for a target.
