My Heart: The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Gift

myheart foox 3 web

For that very special someone, artist David Foox has created a work of art that is limited to a very small number of pieces.  My Heart: The Ultimate Valentine's Day Gift is his own heart painted using heavy duty acrylic (hand mixed from powder to liquid by the artist,) on top of an X-Ray of his chest.  The number of pieces are directly related to the amount of radiation he is able to withstand in a year and are done for this year's Valentine's Day. "I hope I don't get sick and need any more X-Rays, cause according to my doctor I am not allowed any more radiation!", says FOOX describing his Valentine's Day special series of Hearts.

Each piece comes framed in a backlit box and exudes a very spooky and personal quality about it. This project is limited to only eight X-Ray films, each hand painted and unique.  If you are interested in giving one of these to your true love, move fast, they may already be sold out.  With a price tag of $3,000 per Heart, they're nothing to sneeze (or cough) at.
