For an incredibly kawaii series entitled Invertebrate Sleep Habits, Japanese artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here) created this awesomely cute octet of needle felted sea creatures, each of which is tucked into an adorable little bed.

They were created for In The Palm of Your Hand, the January 2014 art exhibition at the EMP Collective in Baltimore, Maryland.
