Hare of the Dog
Jo Gallagher

Hare of the Dog

Hare of the dog - short for ‘hair of the dog that bit you'

Commonly known as a small measure of drink intended to cure a hangover. This expression originates from a medieval belief that someone bitten by a rabid dog could be cured of rabies by taking a potion containing some of the dog’s hair.

Living in the small King Country settlement of Piopio provides Jo with rich visual and personal influences. Jo is an established King Country artist working primarily as a contemporary realist but  more recently she has begun to add another layer of interest into her compositions – that of humour!

"This new collection allows me to explore the fun there is to be had with language, symbolism and entrenched beliefs in a quirky, humorous way." 

This giclee fine art reproduction is printed on 340gsm cotton rag acid free paper using archival inks. It is recommended to frame your print and hang away from direct sunlight.
