Un Valentin pour Vous!

Just across from Ma Bourgogne at Place des Vosges, was a gallery of eclectic art. This colorful heart of hearts by David Kracov seems just the perfect valentine from me to you*. His wall sculpture of enamel on metal is entitled "Look within your Heart"

No chocolate (tant pis), but a pretty nice valentine!

*or as we might say in the South ... "the perfect valentine from me to all y'all!"

This is brilliant! I just enlarged it and spent several minutes admiring the details. Personally, I'll take art over chocolate any day. You appreciate the chocolate, but the art appreciates! A joyeuse Saint Valentin to you, ma chere.
