Giant Bunny Sculptures
Florentijn Hofman's Big Yellow Rabbit Looks Like a Huge Plush Toy

The Big Yellow Rabbit seems to be the discarded plush toy of one giant child. Although it looks all floppy and cuddly, this adorable art installation is actually made out of wood, making the sculpture far from physically comforting. Instead, it’s the super-sized rabbit’s look that will bring a smile to people’s faces.

Conceived and created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, the Big Yellow Rabbit was built for the biennial OpenArt show in Sweden. A temporary structure, it is features concrete, metal and takspån materials, all of which are native to Sweden soil.

Thrown against the statue of Engelbrekt, the Big Yellow Rabbit seems to have popped up out of nowhere; however, since it cost nearly $20,000 to produce, that really isn’t the case.
