Soft Violence.

You might just get night terrors by hugging teddy too tight.

Artist Patricia Waller is interested in our fears and our ability to suppress them. Her plush toys are crocheted by hand and seem harmless at first glance. Then the nightmares begin. The horrific, bet wetting images of the macabre and gory crimes committed on innocent stuffed toys. 

Some of these things are huge. The alligator for instance is 6 feet long.
