Holy Fruit! Fruit boxes and solar imagery

Love this blog.

In the Sacred Heart image in Christian icongraphy Jesus opens his cloak to reveal his heart, which is floating outside his chest. It has a crown of thorns and a crucifix jammed in the top with some little flames licking about the cross. It is not the weirdness of disembodied hovering heart that constitutes my interest in this common religious image though, but the rays of light that are coming from behind it.
