This listing is for one ornament from the series of Folk Art Holy Family Hearts Metal Ornaments. They are a perfect gift or addition to your tree. The image is printed on both sides of the 2.5x3.5 aluminum oval. It is about 2mm thick and has a red ribbon for hanging. There are options for the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary and Chaste Heart of Joseph ornaments. Please choose which one you would like in the dropdown menu.
Immaculate Heart of Mary
When designing the Immaculate Heart, I wanted it to be floral and feminine, and centered around the sunflower which represents Jesus. I included the traditional spear piercing the heart of Mary, as prophesied by Simeon. It is interesting to think about the spear being made of flowers, symbolic perhaps of the sweetness we can gain from our own sorrow and suffering.
Sacred Heart of Jesus
For the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I began with the crown of thorns, and tried to have most of the other elements growing from that. It also includes many downturned flowers, as I was thinking of Jesus’s agony in the garden. The fiery leaves, representing His burning love for us and the light He brings to the world, include a cross shaped bloom.
Chaste Heart of Joseph
The main elements of the Chaste Heart of Joseph are lilies, representing purity. Joseph and images of his heart are traditionally pictured with lilies, so that was the basis for this design. His heart is also centered around the Sunflower and has several floral groups of three to represent the Trinity. I also included some elements from each of the other designs, because Joseph's heart was surely influenced by his close sharing of life with Mary and Jesus.
Also look for the Madonna and Child, St. John the Baptist, St. Cecilia, St. Simeon, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Joseph, St. Michael, Jesus the Bridegroom, Jesus the Good Shepherd, Theotokos, and sets of the Holy Family Hearts ornaments in the Christmas Ornament section of Sweet Oak Gallery!
