♥ The original illustration of a heart shape was conceivably created in the 1250s. The heart is found in a manuscript of a French romance titled “Roman de la Poire” (Romance of the Pear). In the picture, a kneeling lover appears to be offering his heart to a lady. Although, the lover could also be handing her a pear, due to the title of the manuscript. ♥
