Evil Bunny but

acrylic, nail polish on mdf

Not really!
It's based on an ornamental rabbit above the back door of the Cathedral Buildings on Dean Street in Newcastle Upon Tyne. The doorway faces the back of St.Nicholas Cathedral and Amen Corner.
Nobody actually knows the origin but there is a theory, Vampire Rabbit Theory.

Designed by Oliver & Leeson circa 1901

It's gone through some colour changes, in 1988 it was white, and grey, and in 2008 it was painted black.

Get into Newcastle Advert

Yellow Springs may not have the architecture, but it will have the bunny, goes up on Tuesday.
