Artists erect giant pink bunny on mountain

An enormous pink bunny has been erected on an Italian mountainside of the Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy’s Piedmont region where it will stay till 2025.

Wanna see more pictures?

The Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was “knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool”. They also say:

“The things one finds wandering in a landscape: familiar things and utterly unknown, like a flower one has never seen before, or, as Columbus discovered, an inexplicable continent;

and then, behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.

The toilet-paper-pink creature lies on its back: a rabbit-mountain like Gulliver in Lilliput. Happy you feel as you climb up along its ears, almost falling into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woolen landscape of the rabbit’s body, a country dropped from the sky;

ears and limbs sneaking into the distance; from its side flowing heart, liver and
Happily in love you step down the decaying corpse, through the wound, now small like a maggot, over woolen kidney and bowel.
Happy you leave like the larva that gets its wings from an innocent carcass at the roadside.
Such is the happiness which made this rabbit.

i love the rabbit the rabbit loves me.”

Thanks Bob!
