GigantaBunny!

Posted by Picasa "Rabbit" Artesina, Italy 2005
This giant knitted bunny was debuted last year and there has been much promo about it. I think it's hysterical and amazing. I'm actually going to be in this area in June...I am desparate to get to go see it...can't wait.

Borrowed text from the artist's website, (more photos there): 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. The toilet-paper-pink creature lies on its back. a rabbit-mountain like Gulliver in Lilliput. Happy you feel as you climb up along its ears, almost falling into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woolen landscape of the rabbits body, a country dropped from the sky; ears and limbs sneaking into the distance; from its side flowing heart, liver and intestines.After almost 5 years of knitting the rabbit found its final place in the Italian Alps. You might even take your time or check back every now and then as the rabbit will wait for you 20 years from now on.
