A circle of grand objects casts a spell of sorts, even when the circle is a group of concrete bunnies at the Newport Civic Center park.
Perhaps we see a circle of something as an invitation to join a cohesive group.
A circle that surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.
It evokes a meeting of minds, a Loya Jurga, a convocation, a pow wow, a jam session, the big round table in "Dr. Strangelove". Plus it looks cool.

The rationale for the circle of bunnies at the Newport Beach Civic Center complex was that it was something for the little ones without the tacky visual qualities of a "tot lot". On the day we visited, the bunnies were dressed purple scarves for Alzheimer's Awareness Month.
I liked Bunnhenge. It must be the Druid in me.
