This piece is created combining a clothing item and a metallic structure, where a part of the shirt is used as external material in itself. An appropriate volume is created trough pattern designing techniques and pliers rotation without the necessity of an item to fill completely the shirt.

Inside this piece, the metallic structure has the same function for the support of the textile item, as a scaffold in a building, it represents the structural section you don't see at first-sight, the internal part of the piece eager to be discovered, and it's the brooch operating system.

Rito Cardíaco talks about the construction process, about preparing ourselves to start the Heart protection ritual.
