“Sweet Heart”, a candy sculpture by Nathan Sawaya.

Nathan Sawaya’s 2003 sculpture “Sweet Heart” is an anatomically correct 3D heart made from hundreds of Necco Conversation Hearts. Says the artist, “I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. It is a made up holiday and makes more people feel sad than happy. It can make your heart feel vulnerable. Almost edible.”
