Egyptian amulet of a hare.

amulets of cape hares were often deposited in tombs, as their generative powers were thought to help the deceased be reborn into the afterlife. It is also possible that the cape hare derived its amuletic significance from its hieroglyphic meaning; the crouching cape hare, which was assigned the phonetic value of “wen,” was most frequently used as a verb meaning “to be.”

    Ook bij schriftelijke navraag hiernaar kregen we geen gehoor.
