Some say it comes from the shape of the seed pods of the Silphium plant, a key component of Roman love-potion, some say it started with the shape of woman buttocks and indeed it was often shown upside down up through the 14th century. However it got its shape, one thing is sure, it’s been associated with love for millennia.
