Statement: This bear is stacked with three elements to produce one large entity.  At the time, I was attempting to build a new best friend.  Including drying and thinking time, he took almost an entire year to complete.  Raphael is the name of the Arch Angel who we turn to for healing, especially with issues of addiction.  We’d just lost a friend to alcohol and this piece was my response.
