For me the Sacred Heart symbolizes our burning, blazing love for each other, our ability to keep going with love and find faith at the darkest times.
As a person with no religious education beyond the Narnia books, I don’t actually know what the Heart Afire means to people raised in churches.
To me it’s a companion to the Phoenix, a representation of the flame of compassion and faith that burns in our hearts.
(little peek of my Phoenix tattoo in this shot!)
This piece is part of a whole wild road I am going down with Angelina fantasy film and uv resin.
Sacred heart from March.
