eternal protection

I am thinking about living life as a child. Most of us held on to stuffed animals as a piece of comfort. We gave them names and personalities. Sometimes we felt bad if one stuffed animal was being neglected. Some of us had a favorite. If we ever lost one, a part of ourselves was missing. This project is about those beloved beings. I am creating stuffed animals and memorializing them in portraiture. The beings are made out of fabric, sewn, and filled with rice—similar to a rice bag which can be heated up as a means of pain relief or comfort.
