“My creator, Livia Marin, is a Chilean-born artist based in London. She saved me and gave me a second chance, a new life! I originally arrived into this world as a soft, plush teddy bear, mass produced, to be enjoyed by little children around the world. I have heard stories that some of us are treasured forever as a cuddly toy, and others are not so lucky and thrown out. My creator, found me at a local second-hand market, she brought me home and faithfully transformed me with layers of plaster, gesso and finally a glorious, gilded layer to preserve my eminent life.
I am a creation by Livia Marin and I come from the Soft Toys series.”
