Giant Knitted Bunny as Outdoor Art

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

This pink, knitted bunny on the side of Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy’s Piedmont region is so large, it can be seen from space via Google Earth. The outdoor art piece was created by the Viennese art collective Gelatin out of pink wool and straw. The sculpture is meant to be a hands-on exhibit; people are encouraged to climb on it and sit on it.

According to Gelatin group member Wolfgang Gantner, “It’s supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it, and you can’t help but smile.”
