Does the coat make cute noises when you squeeze it?

Yes, actually…it does. It also vibrates.

Apparently she had enough material left over to fashion a merkin as well.

This is the kind of art that makes other people think that all artists are out of touch with reality.

Of course in Sweden the government would have paid for the whole endeavor, and her rent too.

Hooray for Sweden!
