If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a big surprise...

According to the nursery rhyme, we girls are made up of "sugar, and spice, and everything nice", while boys are comprised of a slightly less appetizing mix of "snakes, and snails, and puppy dog tails"...but what, I ask myself, about teddy bears? Has no one ever wondered what the teddy is made of? (Obviously, this is a rhetorical/whimsical question...before anyone mentions "fake fur" and "stuffing").

Thankfully sculptor Stephanie Metz was also curious about the origin of the (teddy) species and has created a series of felted wool sculptures which look at the fetal development of the teddy...

And the cranial development...cue Dr. Bruin, "the specimen you see before you has markedly brachycephalic tendencies"...
