12' tall. Recycled steel, stainless steel. 2015
The Hare is an idealized image of speed and travel, adorable and unassuming. Representing a local inhabitant of the desert, the Hare is a symbol of ambition, energy, and virtue. Being made from repurposed steel, the sculpture serves as a touchstone for environmental and cultural awareness, as well as adding a wonderfully attractive element to the Kingman Route 66 environment. The sculpture incorporates car parts in its design as an homage to the automotive history of Route 66.
