Giant Teddy Bear Sleeping Bags Exist For The Perfect Nap
The 'Great Sleeping Bear' has been created by Japanese artist Eiko Ishizawa, inspired by a bear which escaped from the Italian side of the Alps to the Bavarian side.
If you're wondering why a sleeping bag needs any meaning behind it other than to have a solid nap inside, it is because this sleeping bag is actually a piece of art.
The 'problem bear' generated a discussion about the "many different ideas and emotions in people as illusions in reality by just crossing the borderline between countries".
So, Ishizawa decided to create an object with fake fur which realistically looked like a bear, but could still be used as a sleeping bag so it had a function.
On the website the description reads: "By hiring this connotation of outdoor goods, this work depicts the contradictive relationship between admirations and love of mankind toward wild nature, and the boundaries that we rarely brake."
You can commission a handmade replica of the bear for £1846 ($2350) if you're really dedicated to getting an undisturbed hour of sleep.
