I’m fascinated by hares, the design of the rapper features the symbol of the three conjoined hares that crops up in architecture from China right across the silk route to the British Isles. The Eye in the centre of the wrapper and the latin inscription refers to the connection between the hare and the moon (the moon was the ‘watcher of the sky’ and never slept, and the hare was believed to also rest with eyes open, and be ever watchful). This all underlines the strange healing/protective nature of chocolate when recovering from the effects of a Dementor, and the connection between the giver of the chocolate (Lupin) and the Moon. The Moon and circle as a visual motif recurs throughout the book.
