Italy’s Giant Pink Bunny

If you’re hiking through Italy’s Northern mountains over the next 20 years, don’t be surprised if you run across this 200 foot tall pink bunny:

Pink Bunny

An art group from Vienna designed this massive toy, claiming it was “knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool”. Sounded like complete you-know-what until I saw the bunny for myself via satellite. I’m sure Italy’s taxpayers are proud.

The intent of the project was to make climbers smile and provide them somewhere to lay back and relax:

Interested in climbing on this bunny? First consider:

  1. Who wants to lay on a plush doll that’s been in the rain for 20 years?
  2. How fun is a dead bunny that is a casualty of a skydiving accident? They designed it to look like it had fallen from the sky … complete with an open mouth and organs strewn to the side

I’ll stick to taking pictures from the side. via the Cellar IOTD.

    Well you know…they are running out of natural glaciers over there so I guess stuffed pink bunnies are the natural next step. I’m sure I’d hike several thousand feet of elevation to ascend the pink bunny!

    That would be interesting to come across on a hike if you didn’t know it existed.

    “I’m sure Italy’s taxpayers are proud.” …was this paid by taxpayers?

    Anyway, I think this is an awesome piece of art =:)

    I can just imagine someone trying to to a sky dive onto this thing. That would be so awesome!

    I remember reading about this a few years ago. They hope that lots of wildlife ends up living in it. I wonder what it looks like now, and how many mousies it’s got, and where. Teeheheheheheheeee…

    My cat ‘Rudy’ would just drag that thing into the living-room and do to it what he does to all the other stuffed animals he brings in from the kids room.

    See, I had never noticed the internal organs sliding out the side. I always thought it was supposed to be like a giant kid left their toy there… but the organs make that conclusion something completely different.

    I’m italian and here no one has spoken about this piece of art. It’s not payed by italians, and it’s been made by I’m not an expert in art, but i think a dead pink bunny could only mean we are the killers. The killers of our children dreams, of living in a safe environment, without pollution and war. But as i say before i don’t know nothing about art…

    This reminds me of the mysterious chalk carvings (such as the Cerne Abbas giant) on cliffsides in southern England.
