Black Rabbit of Inlé

The animated adaptation of Richard Adam’s groundbreaking novel Watership Down – still one of my favourite reads, I highly recommend it – introduced me to the harsh realities of death when I was well under double figures. Despite the deep feeling of terror and intense grief that it installed when I was a young un, I return to it again and again and again. Even from an early age, I felt a connection with this harrowing yet beautiful film, set in the fields and hedgerows of my England.

So, when I encountered the sculptural works of Rachel Young and her interpretation of the Black Rabbit of Inlé, I practically fell to my knees in worship.
