Ransom and Rabbits

This charming detail from a window in Ampleforth Abbey by Geoffrey Webb commemorates St Leonard, a deacon who worked miracles that set innocent prisoners free. The artist has depicted a bird escaping from a cage to illustrate the point, as well as a pair of rabbits the leap across the glass.

 

As today, 3 February, is the first day of the Lunar Chinese New Year of the Rabbit, I thought this was especially appropriate. 恭喜發財!
