“There’s a little bit of sweetness in the heart of every woman,” quoted Dali. With this in mind, he created the ‘honeycomb heart’. Honey cluster in the middle of the heart represents this sweetness. The heart was made by Charles Vaillant from Dali’s designs in 1953-54 and were retailed by Alemany & Ertman located at 745 Fifth Avenue in New York.
