    What names are suitable to sculptures?

    May I hear English native speakers' opinion?

    A friend of mine made a sculpture for a monument in the image of a giant expressing "brightness."
    The giant is bending on one of his knees and raising his hands.

    The friend asked me to name it in English.
    I suggested "Giant Brightness," but my friend did not think it is a good name.

    I don't know what names are favorable and acceptable to English native speakers.
    Which one of the following names are okay?

    1. Giant Brightness
    2. Huge Brightness
    3. Enormous Brightness
    4. Massive Brightness

    It is clear that it is a giant and that it is large. Why not just call it "Brightness"? Or, how about "Radiance," or even "And there is light"?

    I suggest that you not be too literal.

    I agree to "Brightness".
    Why doesn't your friend like it?
    A title like that would help the less-artistic to understand what it means. Or does your friend think this is too blatant?
