Stress Much?

These Anxiety Sculptures are Most Excellent! Artist Christine Kaiser believes that, "An anxiety held in your hand or placed on a shelf is one less hiding in your heart." And she designed these little sculptures to help people smile in hard times and give them a visual place to focus their stress. Personifying all the ways anxiety takes over the body, from their clenched fists, tense bodies, crazy hair and nervous eyes, these quirky characters are surprisingly cute and endearing. Who knew you could love Anxiety?

Each one is slightly different (because anxiety comes in all forms) and small (because stress starts with the little things). Handmade in Butler, Pennsylvania of Poplar wood, nails, wire and water-based paints. They are available from Uncommon Goods.
