Artists erect giant pink bunny on mountain

Artists erect giant pink bunny on mountain

An enormous pink bunny has been erected on an Italian mountainside where it will stay for the next 20 years.



The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region.

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

Group member Wolfgang Gantner said: "It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile."

And Gelatin members say the bunny is not just for walking around - they are expecting hikers to climb its 20 foot sides and relax on its belly.

The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain side until 2025.

After all of these years and this is what art has evolved into? A giant pink bunny on a mountain? I'm sure it makes you feel small when you are near it but, I mean, isn't that what a mountain does itself? I mean, a mountain is no giant pink bunny, don't get me wrong. I'm just sayin'.

What they don't mention is that the grannies were used as slave labor and were withheld their heart medication if they didn't knit for ten hours a day.

There's no way that thing lasts 20 years. It'll be ripped apart and trashed long before 2025.

Yeah - I saw "erect", "giant" and "pink", and thought I was in the Mature forum for a second.
