We have just caught wind of this marvelous knitted Rabbit, which has been left lying behind a hill in Italy for the last three years and will be there for another 22. The lovely big Rabbit was knitted by four artists who collectively call themselves "Gelitin". 
This piece is about wandering in the landscape and finding familiar things, or things completely un known, like a flower you have never seen before, or as Columbus discovered, an inexplicable continent.  
To stumble across this giant rabbit, which could have been knitted by giant grandmothers, could make us feel rather small, but it can be climbed on, you can fall in it's mouth, climb it's belly summit, watch it's intestines spew out, fall asleep on it's ear, and wonder at how this giant knitted rabbit country that might have fallen from the sky, can be seen on google earth.
