My Burly Protector

The idea behind this piece is the feeling of warmth and security of someone who you hold to and believe will love and protect you. Whether it be a mother, father, friend, or teddy bear, we all have the someone and something that allows us to feel safe and comfortable. The hairiness of the figure symbolizes the association we have to things such as blankets, fur, a mother's hair, etc. We hold dear to these people and symbols, and hope that no matter what, we can rely on them time after time.
