More Hares

(caption translation edit: Hare Window, Paderborn)
Oh Blogging Mone, what a fantastic find. Thank you so much.

AND MORE AND MORE ... I have been on a short quest, thanks to Blogging Mone alerting me to the fact that the Three Hares symbol is not only found in England. See the Three Hares Project. Which web site also shows the Green Man, another favourite symbol of mine. I have a small one on the dining room wall (and an elf hiding in the chimney alcove above the AGA, but that was made by the builder as a present, bless).

Paderborn is in North Rhine - Westfalia. To be more precise it is in Westfalia. Westfalia's first University was founded there in 1614. The nearest bigger town is Bielefeld, which is the twin city of Rochdale, Lancashire.
Glad you liked the picture :-)

Thank you BMone. Then am I right ? that the word Hasenfenster means Hare Window, as in English the artchitectural term 'fenestration' means the arrangement of windows in a building.

Any Lancastrians lurking out there ?

Yes, on my father's side, but not Rochdale.
