Last week BuzzBuzzHome News told you about a 54 foot rubber duck bobbing in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. The giant duck is a larger than life sculpture by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman and it’s not the only impressive piece he’s created.
Here’s a look at some of the artist’s other gigantic creations that have been displayed in urban areas around the world.
The Big Yellow Rabbit is an enlarged cuddle toy made out of a diverse assortment of materials. The big bunny was displayed in Orebro, Sweden in 2011.
The Slow Slugs, made out of 40,000 plastic bags, were placed on a staircase in Angers, France, near a city church, symbolizing a slow crawl to death.
The Lookout Rabbit was a 39 foot structure that was displayed in Nigmegan, Netherlands. Visitors were able to enter the rabbit and look out at the nearby Waal River.
Amsterdam is home to The Steelman, a 37 foot concrete structure in the shape of a bear holding a pillow. Hofman created the piece in 2011.
This solo show “Dushi” was inspired by children’s toys. Hofman used change in size to show the change of the toys’ touch and function at a grander scale.
Three grand pianos washed up shore is Hofman’s take on stranded cargo and whales. The pianos were shown on the Island of Schiermonnikoog, one of the West Frisian Islands.
