This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile18202/Gelitins-Giant-pink-rabbit.htm>Gelitins Giant pink rabbit</a></b><br><br>Gelitin, a group of artists from Vienna, has erected a pink bunny measuring 200 feet in length (about 60 metres) on the side of a northern Italian mountain.<br />
The artwork, titled &quot;Hase&quot; (which translates simply as &quot;Hare&quot;), is located at a height of 1600m on the mountain Colletto Fava, close to Bar La Baita, above the Village of Artesina, Piemonte, Italy.<br />
<br />
The soft rabbit is constructed out of pink wool, and is expected to remain on the mountain until 2025. Though it seems like a giant children's toy at first glance, a closer look or an in-person exploration quickly leads to the realization that the rabbit's side is split open, and its entrails pulled out.<br />
<br />
The group designed it, but claims it was &quot;knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool.&quot; The group's website, however, provides the actual credits for all the people involved.<br />
<br />
Group member Wolfgang Gantner said: &quot;It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile.&quot;<br />
It's supposed to be on this spot for 20 years.<br />

Hi SpiderX22.

I totally aggree with you. But I don't think we can do anything about it. I think many GEH users take from each other, so do users of other GE sites. :slant:

I saw the rabbit on german TV and tried to find it but it took some time, then I found the story about it and made the hack.
