You should check out the following book: The Rosicrucian Emblems of Daniel
Cramer, edited by Adam McLean, Phanes Press, 1991, ISBN 0-933999-88-7. It
contains nothing but emblematic depictions of hearts (with wings, on fire

Perhaps it might also be of interest of you that Neoism
<http://www.neoism.org> and the Monty Cantsin multiple name were
substantially triggered by the fact that the coiner of Neoism, the Hungarian
Istvan Kantor/Monty Cantsin, was sucked into his performance art career and
into emigration to Canada when the American mail artist David Zack showed
him a color xerox of the bleeding heart of the Virgin Mary in Budapest
around 1978.

In the late 19th century, Erik Satie published a mock-religious paper "Le

to Catholic Artists and the Entire Christianity".
