Designer Ji Lee and his team of inventive public art enthusiasts have created a touching urban intervention titled "Mysterabbit." The street project involves 10,000 tiny bunny statues that have been hidden in random spots across the world.
From South Korea to Iceland to the United States, Lee's small sculptures -- which appear to be meditating -- greet unsuspecting pedestrians who happen to catch a glimpse of the peaceful creatures as they go about their business.
Mysterabbit is a whole new take on the age old cliche, "Stop and smell the roses," that encourages hurried city residents to take slow down and enjoy life's small pleasures. "We hope [Mysterabbits] will stop people from their daily routine and for a brief moment, make them wonder about their mysterious, newly found gift, and a small piece of the beautiful world that surrounds them," the group writes on its website.
If you're already in awe of Lee's heartwarming project, it gets even better. You can download a blueprint for the tiny bunnies and create Mysterabbits of your own with the help of a handy 3D printer. Or you can scope out the map on Mysterabbit's site and see if a horde of bite-sized zen animals are already lurking in your town. We're looking at you, New York and Los Angeles.
