We all know that our own hearts do not look this way even though the one with it being red and pointy at the bottom and curvy on top looks beautiful.
Compared to our chicken thigh in our bodies....oohhh! that is gross...LOL

The popular drawing of a heart is in no way related to the anatomical organ. Where the popular drawing came from I have no idea. The heart has 4 chambers and it's shape is directly related to their function. The two upper chambers are receiving chambers and are therefore smaller, the lower two actually pump the blood to the lungs and out to the body. Because of this they are bigger and have more muscle.
