Receeding Hare Line

Even if this deserves the "words fail" category, I probably should make a brief note about what and why the hell this even exists. I was asked to do a quick doodle illustrating the concept of objects receding into space: demonstrating the use of overlapping shapes, foreshortening and atmospheric perspective. It was supposed to be a parade route lined with a crowd: I countered with "well what about a herd of caribou" and the end it came down to bunnies. It always come down to that. 
If I was a 1st grader and given this exercise, don't know if it would inspire, reinforce basic mathematical principles of art, or just instill some serious childhood trauma and a case of Easterphobia.
