“Aristophanes”

I’ve decided what to name the larger of the two hare sculptures I’m working on:

“Aristophanes”

Big name for a big sculpture.

He seems ‘aristocratic’ to me, which triggered the name. It is derived from the Greek words aristos, meaning ‘best,’ and phanes, meaning ‘appearing.’ (My choice has nothing to do with the 5th century B.C.E. Greek playwright of the same name.)
