This is another fabulous Antique French Holy Card!!! This one was glued into the same 1851 book as the gorgeous Red one that I posted a few weeks ago, you can find it HERE. I have such a thing for these early French religious pieces, they really are so special! You’ll find the original version of the Sacred Heart at the top, I adore every speck and splatter on it, I think it’s perfect the way it is, but I made a black and white cleaned up version as well, since you may find some additional uses for it. Although I attended Catholic school, I’m not actually Catholic and I’m not sure of some of the meanings behind some of the imagery here, I know some of you are experts in this area (particularly Izabella!), so perhaps you or she will let us know in the comments!
