Eight granite boulders, 180 tons. Stuart Collection . University of California, San Diego. © Tim Hawkinson, Courtesy PaceWildenstein, New York.

The Stuart Collection at the University of California, San Diego commissioned the artist to create a permanent large-scale sculpture from eight uncarved granite boulders. The artist transforms the plush, huggable, children’s toy into a towering configuration of seemingly precariously placed massive boulders.
