Flaming Hearts ~ symbol of passion & love Sugar skull lovers appreciate & collect all kinds of Mexican symbology - the flaming heart is one of the favorites. The origin of the flaming heart goes back to the 16th century when the design was brought to Mexico by the Spanish Church to decorate the side altars & saints. It's now a favorite Mexican icon that shows up in milagros, artwork & popular folk art.
What is Britannium? It's a pewter-type alloy favoured for its silvery appearance and smooth surface
