This is beautifully made hand carved solid pine love heart, it sits on a nest of ancient twisted ivy secured to a shaped pine base with another heart shape cut out of it. The pine heart is 2.5 inches thick and nearly 6 inches across, it is sanded to a beautifully smooth finish and is lovely to hold and handle. The grain patterns on this heart are stunning almost symmetrical across the front of the heart, I have cut a key hole on the front and there is an ornate silver decorative key in the keyhole to signify the key to your heart. There are 2 coats of clear varnish to enhance and protect the wood. The ivy nest is made from a section of ivy I found clinging to a long dead oak tree, it’s all gnarly and twisted with many shades of brown running through it. It’s a great contrast to the beautifully smooth and and pure heart. The ivy is securely screwed and glued to a pine base with another heart cut out of it that can be seen when you lift the heart with a key out. The ivy contains a secret, somewhere within the ivy there is a secret compartment containing a little rolled up parchment style scroll, about 8cms by 6cms when unrolled, just enough room for a secret love note or message or you can write anything you want. All in all this makes a fabulous gift for your loved one and a stunning piece to put on display in the house. This piece can be personalised please get in touch any time to discuss details. The dimensions are 36cms long 26cms wide 20cms high.
I made the first one for my partners birthday, it’s evolved a bit now with the secret compartment. I just think it not only looks amazing as it is but could also have a deep meaning within it for the right person.
