Hung Hearts, As Found Shapes, In As A Form Of Found Art
The earliest heart-shaped charges in heraldry appear in the 12th century; the hearts in the coat of arms of Denmark go back to the royal banner of the kings of Denmark, in turn based on a seal used as early as the 1190s. However, while the charges are clearly heart-shaped, they did not in origin depict hearts, or symbolize any idea related to love. Instead they are assumed to have depicted the leaves of the water-lily. [from wikipedia]

Two hearts hung together, as if links in a chain. One was painted blue, the other was painted red. Both suffered from faded paint. The two hearts hung next to the entrance to 385 Lawrence Street in Eugene, Oregon.

A hollow heart hung over a doorway near Bluxome Street at 4th Street in San Francisco. A teapot also hung there. It appeared as if the heart offered a pot of tea to the building.

A single red light tried to glow through a heart hung as a Christmas ornament. It was one of the many decorations found on the Caltrain Christmas Train, parked at the 4th and King station in San Francisco.
