W/Hole hearts display

I wanted to incorporate wooden block with the alphabet as the related to the names a-z of the w/hole hear brooches. the first idea ihad was to mount the blocks to the wall and have the hearts hanging from them. They could be turned around and looked at at the viewers leasure. I then decided against this idea and thought a the first exhibition idea I had though of, which require mounting the heartd sideways on the wall between two glass sheets. As a result the two combines, blocks and mounting between glass made sense. like the brooch if worn, especialliy the back which would not be seen by the the box introduced a sence of the object being un-touchable
