Representations

In 1980, Devon artist Kenneth Evans-Loud, planned to produce a companion 230-foot (70 m) female figure on the opposite hill, featuring Marilyn Monroe in her iconic pose from the film The Seven Year Itch where her dress is blown by a subway grating.

In 1989, Turner Prize winning artist, Grayson Perry designed a set of motorbike leathers, inspired by the Cerne Abbas Giant. In 1994, girls from Roedean School painted an 80-foot (24 m) replica of the Giant on their playing field, the day before sports day. In 1999, a plaque was discovered near the nose of the Marree Man, a modern geoglyph discovered a year earlier, "claiming that a clue to its origins are to be found buried in a sealed container near the Cerne Giant".

In 2003, pranksters created their own 75-foot (23 m) version of the Giant on a hill in English Bicknor, but "wearing wellies, an ear of corn hanging from its mouth and a tankard of ale in its hand". In 2005, the makers of Lynx deodorant created a 100,000 sq ft (9,300 m2) advert on a field near Gatwick, featuring a copy of the Giant wearing underpants, frolicking with two scantily-clad women. In 2006, artist Peter John Hardwick produced a painting "The Two Dancers with the Cerne Abbas Giant, with Apologies to Picasso" that is on display at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. In 2009, the Giant was given a red nose, to publicize the BBC's Comic Relief charity event. In 2011, English animators, The Brothers McLeod produced a 15-second cartoon giving their take, on what the Giant does when no one is watching.
