Rabbit Torc - Medium Braid
All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed.
- Richard Adams, Watership Downs
The Rabbit Torc is constructed with a medium braid wire, and is approximately 5/16” (8mm) thick. It is available in both bronze and silver.
Celtic peoples looked on the rabbit (and it’s cousin the hare) as a creature with supernatural powers. They admired their strength and speed, but treated them with caution. It was widely suspected that rabbits and hares were actually otherworldly shape-shifting women, and were reluctant to hunt them. Indeed, when the Romans invaded the British Isles, Julius Caesar made the observation that the Celtic people did not regard it lawful to eat the hare.
