This is my very very first post, so if it's in the wrong place have mercy on the n00b.

I made this for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day.  I got the idea from this guy who makes sculptures out of Legos.  His name is Nathan Sawaya, as the wonderfully helpful BeatnikChick has just informed me.



All I did was take a block of floral foam and sculpt it into the general shape of the heart, sans arteries.  I hot glued the hearts all over, trying my best to cover everything.  When I got to the top I just started building up from the bulk of the heart so the arteries would be hollow.   



(You can see the strings of hot glue that I had yet to clean off)

He still hasn't been allowed to take it home, because I just made it's base the other day.  I'm too lazy to take pictures of that right now, but basically I just took another smaller square of floral foam and covered it with the leftover green, yellow, and white hearts.  Then I stuck the heart on a short dowel and stabbed it in (gluing the crap out of it for security).

I'm thinking about making a set of lungs out of Altoids next.  I actually have an entire set of organs I'd like to make.  What do you think?

I've seen this before. I can't find it now, but I was making a class project about v-day & found one of these. It was so cool. I really like your take on it.
