Tin hearts are a tradition from Mexico. This one has been adapted to show pandemic emotions through the colours of hope.

Elisa de Padua is originally from Chile, and finishing her PhD in Cambridge. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, she has not been able to visit her family in Chile, so felt the need to connect her mind and heart with Latin America through art and crafts.
