pink rabbit

That's exactly what it is - multiplied a zillion.
In 2005, the art group Gelitin installed a project that had taken 5 years to knit: a massive pink bunny, flopped upon a hill above the village of Artesina, in Piemonte (Piedmont), Italy. As the Gelitin page says,
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.

Just how small? Ah, pix are worth a thousand words.

That is one BIG bunny!

Any idea what the deal is with the guts on one side? Was the bunny supposedly killed by a humongous car, or something?

Well... I kinda got the idea it was for extra exploring fun. Trust me, I work with a lot of artists,and that would be a very artisty thing. (I love them by the way.)
