Well, this is a model of something you will see in full size....soon enough.
To my knowledge this is a FIRST--the world's first structural stone masonry arch built in a heart shape. Someone must have done it before...right? I can find nothing. If you do, please let me know.
The frame is reclaimed lumber, the stone is small fragments leftover from years and years of building patios and walls.
I decided to make the model actually serve a function, hence it has a shelf and a mirror built into it. Here, it is pictured atop another shelf, though it can actually be mounted directly to a wall itself.
The "wall" is 4 inches thick and the arch is self-supporting.
