Bear with me

Tiny bears made by Karen Apps -- they are transitional objects in more ways than one, she explains on her website. They have moveable joints - one is made of mohair and the other was once a map - 
MapBear was destined to home with me (thank you so much, Karen!). Sitting, he measures 55mm (1 3/4 inches), and my photo doesn't do justice to his expression, a mixture of bewilderment and grumpiness (vraiment, c'est moi) -
I've been delighted with Karen's tiny bears ever since seeing them; as a bookarts course project she made one out of a chapter of Winnicott's "The child, the family and the outside world".
