30,000 Plates cover Giant Porcelain (year of the) Rabbit | Oddity Central

Giant Porcelain Rabbit Made from 30,000 Plates | Oddity Central - Collecting Oddities:
"The people of Jingdezhen City, China have found an original way to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Rabbit – they’ve built a giant statue of a rabbit from 30,000 porcelain plates.
