From the homepage of Austrian based art collective gelitin:
The things one finds wandering in a landscape: familiar things and utterly unknown, like a flower one has never seen before, or, as Columbus discovered, an inexplicable continent; and then, behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.
In Hase / Rabbit / Coniglio, gelitin placed a gigantic rabbit in the Italian Alps. The rabbit is so big, it can be seen from outer space and a human on its belly looks like a tiny black dot (check out the YouTube video). After almost 5 years of knitting, this pink rabbit suddenly appeared near the village of Cuneo in Italy in 2005 and is planned to stay there for the next 20 years.
