The Heart – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a a loving heart with a good mark tick cut into it to symbolise the ‘good’. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
