About this Product

Designed and modelled in collaboration with artists Helen and Colin David (www.helenandcolindavid.com) as the decoration on their Christmas Tree commission at London's Victoria and Albert Museum this year (www.vam.ac.uk). You can see the tree and its decorations in place at the V&A from the 3rd December 2013. The walls of the heart are beautifully thin at 0.8mm thick, with the design cut out of one wall. There is a small hole at the top of the heart for hanging (or for inserting a fibre optic light as Helen and Colin have done). To learn more go to the maker's website: www.heyking3d.com.

Hi @burtbellows - The nylon is surprisingly strong, despite the walls being as thin as possible to give it a delicate feel. So I'd not be too worried about the occasional drop. Just don't let your kids play football with it!

Curious about the strength... this is Nylon I realize, so not likely to shatter unless frozen... but at $45 for a plastic heart, I'm a little worried about kids, dropping, etc.
