Sophie Ryder Sculpture in Bath

A remarkable new sculpture by British sculptor Sophie Ryder has gone on display in Bath. It depicts a group of half-human, half hare figures with their hounds. Here is a selection of views of the work. I think you will agree that it is pretty unusual and quite thought-provoking.


  1. These are wonderful, and I recall our visit to Bath last summer when the 'Pigs in Bath' exhibition was on. I must look up Sophie Ryder; thanks for introducing her work.

  2. wow!.. Those are amazing!.. I would love one of those. Also thanks for revealing another new thing to me!

  3. Ann, thank you. Ah! The pigs? Brilliant, weren't they?

    Hi watercats, me too! I especially love her giant hares.

    Sophie's new website details her work:


  4. Such sweet, loving, gentle expressions on everyone's faces, two-legged or four! Amazing how she could capture that. Thanks, Laurie, for brightening the day.

  5. Oh my gosh I just a post all about rabbits and a fellow blogger suggest I visit here and I LOVE it. This sculpture is wonderful.
