Google Maps is fast turning into a gallery for pieces of giant sized art. This newly 'documented from space' project sees a giant pink knitted toy rabbit, that lies on the side of the Colletto Fava mountain in the north of Italy. Created by Gelitin, the Viennese art collective, who claim it was knitted by Grannies, and took five years to make.
Wolfgang Gantner, a member of the collective, says "It is supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver".
The 70 metre artwork entitled 'Hase' (or Rabbit in English), appears to have either fallen from space, or perhaps have been carelessly left behind by an even bigger giant child, has unsurprisingly has become a very popular attraction. People do not just walk around it and take in its giant size, they also climb on top as it's belly makes a great place to relax and take in the spectacular view of the Piedmont mountain range. Made of soft, waterproof materials and stuffed with straw, the toy rabbit is hoped to remain in place until 2025. I can't see anyone being able to take it home with them, so unless the giant child returns for their rabbit, you are still in with a good chance that you can see the rabbit for a long time to come.
Experience the artwork from the comfort of your web connection, and view it in Google Maps here.
For the more active and adventurous that want to visit the artwork, the location of the rabbit is Bar La Baita above the Village of Artesina, Piemonte, Italy. Directions can be found here, and more information including photos taken by tourists to the attraction can be found here.
