The anatomical heart is essential to survival, pumping blood and helping circulate oxygen throughout our bodies. The symbolic heart is essential to popular culture and can be seen in everything from art and literature to fashion and, of course, technology - coming in close second only to “tears of joy” as the most frequently used emoji in 2021.

Despite true love actually starting in the brain, the heart has been synonymous to love tracing as far back as Ancient times. However, it wasn’t until medieval times that the symmetrical heart symbol, with its double lobes that join at a point, was introduced in a French manuscript. Whether it be anatomical or symbolic, the heart represents emotion, affection and romantic love and continues to be a muse for artists to this day.
