Even teddy bears have skeletal anatomy that is just as cute.
Wool sculptor, Stephanie Metz, created these soft felty skeletons. Her interest lies in,
A pseudo-scientific study of the morphology of skulls: the form and structures that differentiate one breed from another and give a sense of the story of the individual. My approach is to research, document, present, and interpret evidence in a formal manner. My subject species is the teddy bear: a creature made by humans (and made ‘alive’ by imagination) whose morphological history is tied to social trends. My idea of ‘logical’ evidence (a stuffed animal would have a skull made of felt) becomes an emotionally loaded image that brings up a wide range of responses and proves to be ripe for further exploration.
Wonderfully creative. I wonder if Stephanie will consider doing the rest of the teddy bear skeleton?
