The Giant Pink Bunny at Colletto Fava

Jul 19, 2016 0 comments

On the hills of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region, there lies an enormous pink bunny. The toy lies on its back with arms open to the skies, from where it appears to have fallen. The fall must have been fatal, because the bunny’s side is split open and its entrails are spilled out. It’s not exactly a ghastly sight. Instead, it makes you smile.

The pink rabbit was knitted by Gelitin, a group of artists from Vienna, as an outdoor sculpture for people to climb on, relax on its belly, and generally play with. The bunny is 200 feet long and about 20 feet thick. It is made of soft, waterproof, materials and is stuffed with straw.

The bunny appeared on the hills in 2005 and was originally bright pink. Now it has turned murky grey, and is slowly rotting back into the earth. The bunny is expected to entirely disappear naturally by 2025. There are no plans to move it or save it.
