I find a strange irony in the iconography of the teddy bear. The teddy bear represents comfort, softness, tenderness. but if we look at what the teddy bear represent, as it represents the animal of the bear. There is however, a fierce creatures defence of creatures, creatures of aggression, creatures affright, creatures of strength, courage, creatures of might. I find a certain beauty, to those icons which present tenderness and ferocity; I think I understand now why we find such vulnerability in those noble creatures who express strength, those mythical creatures of amazing beauty and grace yet express fundamental emptiness.
