The Pink Rabbit in Colletto Fava

The Pink Rabbit in Colletto Fava, in Artesina, Piedmont, opens its arms to the skies, from where it seems to have fallen. It appeared on this hill in 2005, at 1,600 meters above sea level, and should lay in this spot until 2025, according to the calculations of its four visionary creators – the Austrian collective Gelitin. At that point (real) animals and the weather will have consumed it completely.

The colossal sculpture – 55 meters long, 41 meters across the arms, and 5 meters thick – is in fact completely made of wool and hey.

It is a biodegradable installation, and an environmental monument that can is visible even on Google Maps.

A cute and fun Land Art experiment.
