The Sacred Heart is often depicted in Christian art as a flaming heart shining with divine light, pierced by the lance-wound, surrounded by a crown of thorns, surmounted by a cross and bleeding. Sometimes the image is over the body of Jesus with his wounded hands pointing at the heart. The wounds and crown of thorns allude to the manner of Jesus
