The first known depiction of a heart as a symbol of romantic love dates to the 1250s. In the miniature, a kneeling lover offers his heart to a damsel. However, in this miniature what suggests a heart shape is only the result of a lover's finger superimposed on an object; the full shape outline of the object is partly hidden, and therefore unknown. Opinions, therefore, differ over this being the first depiction of a heart as a symbol of romantic love. The convention of showing the heart point upward switches in the late 14th century and becomes rare in the first half of the 15th century. A slightly later example with a more pronounced dent is found in a manuscript from the Cistercian monastery in Brussels.
