The Royal Horticultural Society is the UK’s leading gardening charity. They aim to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place. This vision underpins all that they do – from inspirational gardens and shows, through scientific research, to education and community programmes. The Dancing Hares are right at home in such a beautiful open air environment. Boasting 240 acres of gardens, the Dancing Hares are located by the lake at the entrance to the glass house at Wisley.
Standing at over four and a half meters high and over seven meters wide, this joyous sculpture is one of Ryder’s most well known and loved images. The surface of Dancing Hares is full of Ryder’s iconic found objects, toys and machine parts.
