Flanagan's interest in ancient art and thought systems as ways to access universal meaning led him to the image of the hare. He acknowledges the book ""The Leaping Hare"" by George Ewart Evans and David Thomson as a source of inspiration in which the authors discuss the Egyptian hieroglyph for the hare as a symbol of being. The hare under discussion stands in a claw and ball, a motif associated with English Furniture , mounted n a pyramid.
