“The heart is symbolized by the sun as a center of life and the rayed sun and radiant or flaming heart share the same symbolism as centers of the macrocosm and microcosm, as the heavens and man and as transcendent intelligence. The heart is also portrayed by the downward pointing triangle. For Aztec, the center of man, religion and love; the unifying principle. The heart sacrifice represented the liberating of the life-blood, the seed of life, to germinate and flower. In Christianity, love, understanding, courage, joy and sorrow. The flaming heart depicts religious fervor, zeal and devotion; Love, understanding, courage, joy and sorrow. The pierced heart is penitence.”
