Nijinski Hare: Kung Fu Rabbit

Field review by the editors.

St. Louis, Missouri

Sculpted by the late Barry Flanagan in 1996, Nijinski Hare stands ten feet tall. Wiry and ripped, this is not a cuddly bunny rabbit, despite its comically big ears. Flanagan made a number of similar big bronze rabbits beginning in the 1980s, when he had a vision of "a hare unveiling itself." Although this particular bunny was inspired by Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, it looks more like a tribute to Jackie Chan.
