Tis the season. Think about it. Grandpa opens his package, and instead of a coxy blanket, he gets a pair of embroidered breasts. We think this is safer than a nudie mag subscription.

UK artist Sally Hewett uses the art of embroidery to explore cultural conceptions and conventions of beauty and ugliness in relation to the human body.
