Oh, man.  Any passing aliens are totally going to go 'wtf'.

Plus it probably won't be long before that thing is rotting and melting and getting dirty and swimming with disease...

Or until it rots, whichever comes first.

I dunno, wool is surprisingly resilient, especially if it's been treated with preserving chemicals. I reckon it'll last.

If they tried it here it'd be burned to a crisp inside a month.

The angle of the photograph is totally brilliant. You can see the bunny's position and all details with perfection.

Personally, I'm not attracted to projects aiming towards size and grandeur. I think I'd be more impressed by a microscopic bunny than that thing. It's pretty nice and looks comfy, though.

I wouldn't mind giant Backyardigans, though...

Haahhaha, I always love art projects like this.  I wonder how pink it will stay, also.  :D

Something about that bunny's giant, bulging eyeballs scares me.

What the heck?
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye. An evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum swam across the Gulf of Mexico wearing a shark fin on his back and then planted a bomb on a boat. Think about that. Let that sink in. Now. Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

's not that crazy, note the subtle blending balance between the symmetric pose of the bunny and the blunt assymmetry of the surrounding forest and the juxtaposing of the pink and the green.

Ah, who am I kidding, it's frigging nuts! ::) That's art for ya.

...won't that start to smell after it gets rained on for a while and the mildew spreads?
