Story about Heart Outline Icon

Our fake heart has so much fake love to give. These days, the heart shape can be saying a lot of different things at once, from the conventional “I love you” to more meaningful sentences such as “What a nice selfie!” It is certainly the gift that keeps on giving.

People have come up with various theories on how the heart shape, which looks nothing like the real heart, originated. One of the more prominent ones date back in 7th century B.C. in city-state Cyrene, where a profitable trade of a now extinct plant called “silphium” existed. Among other uses, the plant was known to be an effective form of birth control. And because silphium played such a key role in Cyrene’s economy, they had their coins engraved with the plant’s seedpod, which strikes a strong resemblance with the heart shape that we know today.

Other claims just say that the heart icon originated from the ancients’ badly drawn sketch of the human heart, which also makes perfect sense.
