ЮBanksy's "Heart Balloon"

The helium balloon. An object of such poetry. Its lightness, its fragility, its way of wandering on the breeze.This piece is obviously an iconic representation of battle to survive a broken heart. It's an uplifting visual poem to that most fragile of human emotions but seem to move within us as if on a soft breeze.
