Big Bunny

October’s theme for A Month of Softies is likely to be Enormous Landmarks. I am just kidding but how incredibly marvellous is this bunny on a mountainside in Italy?

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

Via Johnny (on Drawn!).

  9. This can’t be real, can it? In 20 years, how many families of mice will be living inside that rabbit? The article says people will be hiking up it… for how long?
    I really want it to be real though… 😉

    That’s quite disgusting for some readon — it makes me feel sick. Although i assume it isn’t real…

    I didn’t realize just how large this rabbit was until I saw the TINY people next to it !
    I wonder if it is covered in some kind of transparent weatherproof plastic to protect it from the elements ? I do hope so.
