huge pink rabbit seen on Google Earth

High in the Italian Alps, there rests a huge pink rabbit that can be seen from space.

The 200-foot-long knitted rabbit is the creation of Gelitin (a group of four artists). It took nearly 5 years to knit and is supposed to portray a toy rabbit that was cast off by a giant toddler. It was intended to look like it was knitted by the toddler's grandmother.

To get an idea of how big this rabbit is, in the picture, you will notice a dot that looks like the bunny's belly button. That is a person.

To see the picture from space via Google Earth, see this link. For more information about the rabbit itself, follow this link to the Gelitin art site.
