  Three hares have six ears altogether?
by Kathrin_E

The tracery of one window in the cloister shows a trick of medieval mathematics. Three hares form a circle. Each of them has two ears but in total there are only three ears.

Location: inside the cloister of the cathedral on the northern side, behind/above the peacock fountain.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
