Along a 13 km stretch of the Kings Highway in Australia’s NSW hang hundreds of forgotten, rotting teddy bears, bunnies, koalas, gorillas and dogs, each with their own story of a life that predates being nailed to the trunk of a gum tree and left to watch over this lonely length of road. 
There are many theories as to the why and who. Some say they were posted by locals in protest of…something, or to pay tribute to military overseas. What we know is that they are creepy, but beautiful. There is dignity in their deterioration and only they hold the key to their own mystery.
