CHALLENGE: Puncient Philosophers

Let's draw some philosophers but with puns.

The idea is to choose a famous philosopher, historical or contemporary (you are not restricted to antiquity only, as the name of the challenge could suggest), create a word play with their name, and draw the result. Depending on the period it should be a sculpture, a painting or a photo, but we can be flexible if you get creative.

If you have no ideas for philosophers, names, or puns you can use one of these basic examples:


Max 100x200 (vertical)
Colours: Max 32
Transparency: Optional (probably necessary for a sculpture and can be used for irregullar frames of painting or photo)
Animation: No
