The Hare Woman’s Cottage
5 in stock
A bit about the Piece:
“Hares have long been associated with shape shifting and magic. Isobel Gowdie was a 17th Century Scotswoman who confessed to many acts of witchcraft including transformation into a hare. Even across the centuries her spell brings the idea alive.
To turn into a hare Gowdie would chant:
I shall go into a hare,
With sorrow and sych and meickle care;
And I shall go in the Devil’s name,
Ay while I come home again.
To change back, she would say:
Hare, hare, God send thee care.
I am in a hare’s likeness now,
But I shall be in a woman’s likeness even now.”
