Insanely Detailed Mechanical Heart Paper Sculptures


The heart is such a complicated thing, both physically as it beats to keep us alive, and emotionally in matters of love.

The pieces are intended to represent various moods of the heart and link to themes such as "fragility, passion, uncertainty, and desire."
