Artists erect giant pink bunny on mountain

Excellent! I think I’ll propose a soft toy version of the Super Lamb Banana to go on top of Moel Famau. On a clear day we’ll be able to see it from Liverpool. Do you think there’ll be much of an outcry at all?

Via Ananova…
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

Update: There’s more on this in the Guardian blog. They remind is that in the Dorset Countryside the Cerne Abbas giant is a huge chalk carving of a “naked, sexually aroused, club-wielding giant”.
