An old friend of mine living in Australia shared news of this recent exhibition with me. Kind of a amazing and mind blowing if you like rabbits and art. I dunno, maybe you get a rabbity-arty vibe off me?
Lepus Australis was an art exhibition celebrating domestic bunnies in Australia. 1000 origami bunnies was showcased along with art from 40 Australian artists at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne. All those origimi rabbits. I kind of wish I had thought of origami rabbits for our wedding. That would have been way cooler than the lame origami cranes I folded for months.
“Lepus Australis aims to remember the lives of the beautiful bunnies lost to myxomatosis and highlight the need for a myxo vaccine in Australia.”
Please visit their tumblr site www.lepusaustralis.tumblr.com for more information including a full list of artists and links.
My pet bunny was brought to our wedding reception, he peed on the manager’s desk! Luv bunnies!
I actually follow their facebook page and it is so heart breaking when they have to make more cranes. I feel like I would have to be seriously unlucky to loose one of my fluffy butts to it because they are pretty much 100% apartment bunnies. Such a horrible thing for the councils to release. I’m forever sending out emails to them!
