Giant Pink Bunny on Google Earth!

Artist Sketch
From the sky (with someone on the belly)During Construction
From the Guardian:
"Behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy," said group member Wolfgang Gantner. The artists want people to scale the rabbit's sides and fall asleep on its stomach…"(as in the top picture)
From the artists of Gelitin:
After almost 5 years of knitting the rabbit found its final place in the Italian alps (close to Cuneo). It waits there to be visited by you. 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.
Going on my bucket list! But I think sooner than later... a giant knitted bunny prob won't last the elements/wildlife for very long.. :)

see it on Google Earth!
