The Shape of My Heart

I shot this cake a few years back for an Easy Solutions cover


Here’s the very first image ever depicting a man handing his heart to a woman and having it signify romantic love. It’s from the 13th Century.Roman_de_la_poire_heart_metaphor

Where does the shape of the heart come from?

Theories abound:

~ Modeled after the actual shape of the human heart.

~ It depicts the female body.

~ The shape comes from the seed of a plant used for contraception in ancient Egypt.

I don’t know where the shape derives but I can tell you what my heart is full of … a little bacon, a touch of Neil Young and a whole lotta lovin. Happy V day!
