The Balloon House Design Studio Flower Mound, Texas The King of Hearts was a massive, balloon-sculptured ape hanging from a building. His 14-foot, musclebound torso was structured from conduit with fencing laid over the form and molded to shape. Hundreds of air-filled latex balloons were hand-tied to the wire frame. Facial features were created with balloon distortion techniques. His eyes, mouth and head were independently animated. A biplane circled over the building, and hearts hung from the top of the building. Miniature cityscapes bordered the sculpture.
