Hare and Tortoise
Aesop’s fable makes this pair iconic. I especially love the gangly figure of the hare leaping. But I do not believe the fable, and I think my iconic hare very unlikely to take a nap in the middle of a race! Also, I do not believe that “slow and sure” is a very glamorous or workable approach to life nowadays. However, I do think my tortoise is quite beautiful.
