A little metal heart pendant, i sculpted a while ago and got cast in bronze, placed in a jewelry box my grandmother gave me and which was a gift from my grandfather to her.

A gift offered out of love, from the past, from another country, another continent, containing traces of the passage of time, erosion, torn silk strings, a broken door; changed with an added part (the sculpted heart) made out of a similar material (bronze), which despite its short lifetime, already contains traces of time, erosion, marks, hollow (the heart collapsed onto itself in the molding process), created by a person of the same blood, in the future /present, on another continent. A way to connect with loved ones, far in space and time.
