Feel the LOVE

Feel the LOVE

Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love :)
LOVE is a sculpture by American artist Robert Indiana.
It consists of the letters LO (with the O canted sideways) over the letters VE.
The image was originally designed as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art in 1964.
The original three-dimensional version of LOVE is made of COR-TEN steel and has been on exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 1970.
The LOVE design has been reproduced in a variety of formats.
Likewise, the sculpture has been recreated in multiple versions and a variety of colors, and is now on display around the world.

Thanks to Laine for sending me instructions on how to create the Orton Effect with this image!!
Hopefully I did it correctly....
