Map of a woman's heart - 1800's

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I found this beautiful drawing of a map of a woman's heart from the 1800's. It tells us a lot about how women were perceived at this time. You'll need to enlarge it to see the detail. I love the huge 'Love of Dress' section which seems to be intersected by the 'Sea of Wealth'. How apt!

The article was found on the wonderful Brain Pickings blog.

I'd like to see a 21C version of this map. What would you add to the modern version?
