Giant Rabbit Tumbles Through Town Square in Sweden

Designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, the 42-ft. high temporary sculpture, known in Swedish as Stor Gul Kanin, is a lot tougher than the fluffy friend who brings dyed eggs each April. Hofman's large "cuddle toy," as he describes it, was constructed with concrete, metal and wood by local craftsmen.
Hofman is famous for dropping ginormous critters into different locales around the world. Earlier this year, he designed a towering teddy bear that stood over Amsterdam – while holding a pillow. And last year, his inflatable Fat Monkey – made entirely of flip flops! – took a big snooze in São Paolo.
