😍 looks like a crystal heart ❤💎 This stunning sculpture, Bleigiessen, isn't on display at Wellcome Collection, but hangs in the Wellcome building next door.

Thomas Heatherwick Studio created this piece using 150,000 glass spheres, suspended on almost one million metres of fine wire. The sculpture glows with a constantly-shifting rainbow of colours.

Bleigiessen ("lead-pouring") is a New Year's Eve activity in central Europe. Molten lead (now often wax) is poured into water, producing extraordinary shapes from which your fortune can be predicted for the coming year.
