This sculpture, "defense mechanism," represents the nature of our hearts. This sculpture is associating with the barriers we as emotional human beings tend to put up to protect ourselves- the act of guarding something so valuable and precious to us, out hearts. The thing that keeps us alive, can be easily destroyed with emotional pain just as any bullet would. So as a defense mechanism we decide to shield it, almost like wearing a safety armor, praying no harm gets through to it.
