In the painting, Pisanello tells the story of Saint Eustace who, while out hunting, sees a stag with a Crucifix between its antlers and is converted to Christianity. This painting is exemplary of Pisanello's practise of naturalistic representation where he adds exceptional detail to animals and plants without paying attention to spatial realism and perspective. Although the hare is just one corner of the tableau, it epitomises the beautiful, magical mysticism with which Pisanello paints to suggest the story's spiritual nature. Get lost in between the gold piping of this cushion, and find yourself amongst the sprinkled golden flowers which radiate off the hare like gold dust.
