Sweet Heart Coloring Page for Adults
The expression of a broken heart is a cross-cultural reference to grief for a lost one or to unfulfilled romantic love. The notion of “Cupid’s arrows” is ancient, due to Ovid, but while Ovid describes Cupid as wounding his victims with his arrows, it is not made explicit that it is the heart that is wounded. The familiar iconography of Cupid shooting little heart symbols is a Renaissance theme that became tied to Valentine’s day.
