Paper and Steel Rabbits

Feb, 2012: Origami artist, David Shall, was extremely excited to see his paper origami rabbit recreated in steel and displayed near the Ashbourne exit of highway N2 (County Meath, Ireland).

The giant rabbit is 6 meters (20 feet) high and weighs over 4 tons. The metal sculpture was created by large-scale-artist, Alex Penteck.
