In addition to the tiny rabbit sculptures invading cities near you, now there’s another kind of art bunny to look out for. These 4-meter high, bubblegum-pink rabbit sculptures are taking over the city of Brisbane in Australia as part of the Brisbane Festival, September 9-28.

The large bright pink bunnies are the vision of street artist Stormie Mills. Cast out of polyurethane, the outer pieces are supported by a steel internal frame and plastic subframe.

Said Mills, “It’s like a vinyl toy in a sense, but a bit tougher and certainly a whole lot larger. The last step is that somebody goes in and tightens everything up from the inside, crawls back out the bunny’s bum and we glue the tail on.”
