Things That Weigh More Than Me: Super Fun, Tons of Buns!

 

While these bunnies may look soft and fluffy, they are anything but.  These colossal cuties (by Dutch artist Tom Claassen) are on display at the Citygarden in St. Louis.  I am pictured whispering into the ear of the taller of the two.   These bunnies are cast in bronze and then covered with white enamel paint.  So while they look marshmallows, these are some seriously heavy rabbits. 
Here’s the stats:
Material: Bronze
Dimensions: Bun 1—87”x61”x55”, Bun 2–63″x68″x45″
Weight: I don’t specific weight data, but at over 7 feet tall, I think we can safely calculate over a ton of buns!
Conclusion: Tom Claassen’s fluffy bunnies weight more than me.

P.S. There’s lots more info on corpulent cottontails over at Fat Chick Sings.  Go check it out!
