Where did this symbol for love or a heart come from?

I'm just curious. It doesn't look like a heart. Why is this symbol assoicated with love? When did it first show up?

Thankee

It's a symbolic representation of female genitalia.

Weird how it became "love" isn't it?

Ahh Its ment to be from the Silphiuma seedpod that is no longer in excistance, I think it was in the shape of a heart and was somehow assosiated with love,

Ill have to have a look up on it again,

Unfortunatley, it looks like things haven't changed very much.

Looks like Asala and I might both be a bit off. There's a very interesting scholarly paper here, that says it comes from the ivy leaf in ancient Greece.

I never even realized that until now, but sure enough!

All of my favorite places.
