Rabbit Hill

It's like the artistic equivalent of road kill… High on a mountain in Piedmont, Italy, there's an enormous fluffy pink bunny. There's no real reason for it being there, except that it's art, created by Viennese art group Gelitin. And the bunny (which took almost five years to knit) will be there for as long as it takes to be claimed by the elements around it. That's estimated at 2025.

Rabbit HillLilliput.

'Happy you feel as you climb up along its ears, almost falling into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woolen landscape of the rabbit's body, a country dropped from the sky; ears and limbs sneaking into the distance; from its side flowing heart, liver and intestines. Happily in love you step down the decaying corpse, through the wound, now small like a maggot, over woolen kidney and bowel. Happy you leave like the larva that gets its wings from an innocent carcass at the roadside. Such is the happiness which made this rabbit.'
