The symbol of the heart dates back as far as the early ice age. Hearts were drawn on cave walls, although their meaning and significance is unknown. Scientists posit that the earliest known associations of the heart symbol originated from the seed pod of the silphium plant which was believed to be used as a contraceptive. However, another belief is that the heart shape originated from the ancient Greek god Dionysus's link with ivy and ivy leaves. Ivy leaves resemble the heart shape and Dionysus's reputation as a philanderer linked the heart shape to romantic love. It wasn't until the middle ages and the rise of Christianity that the heart came mean the love of God. The Sacred Heart is one of the ways that the heart symbol came to be well-known.
Today, heart shapes can mean anything from infatuation to eternal romantic love to familial and amicable love. Be sure to purchase a 1 oz Poured Silver Heart - Trident Silver .999 Pure collectible for your loved one from Gainesville Coins.
