Jeff Koons’ lighter side

Big rabbits always get a look in on overthenet, and big inflatable rabbits are guaranteed a mention. This year’s Macy’s Parade in New York featured a 16 meter-tall helium balloon version of Koons’s Rabbit filled with 132 cubic meters of helium. So Rabbit has now journeyed from its original inflatable form as a toy, via the stainless steel art version and back to an inflatable again. Here’s another rabbit sighting sent in by a reader. Thanks J.
