This is a decorative object made out of Camel cigarette boxes. The shape of the object is a heart surrounding a rectangular woven mat. The heart is constructed with the brown, yellow, and cream pattern of the cigarette paper visible. The bottom of the object shows cream colored paper with two yellow stripes crossing at center over two open squares. Photographic images of a man and a woman are woven into the top center of the heart, and the Playboy Bunny symbol appears on the back of the object at center.
