Destinations: A Pink Bunny in the Alps

I share with you toady an inexplicable piece of landscape art.  Who, What, WHY?

Who? Gelitin, a group of four artists in the Italian Alps, close to Cuneo, created this giant pink bunny rabbit landscape art installation.

What? It is knitted, and took more than 5 years to create.  It’s big enough to be seen on google maps.  This gigantic pink rabbit has been laying there since 2005 and is expected to last about 20 years you have about 15 years to get there if you want to check it out.

Why? The designers poetically offer, “behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.”   – Well, obviously.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I think it’s funny. The alarmed expression (gaping mouth and wide eyes) suggests that it has been tossed aside by a giant child. Probably for a computer game with a large pink bunny.
