"The Sacred Heart of Jesus (Sagrado Corazón de Jesús) is one of the most powerful images visually [in Colombia]. It is respected both in homes and on the street, something constant in all countries where Catholicism has had a great influence. The image of the Sacred Heart has become the religious image that appears the most, both on a street and domestic level."

"In Colombia, it is the national image par excellence of popular religiosity. In the 1991 constitutional reform, the country appears to be consecrated to this symbol. Its cultural penetration has been so high that no image equals its splendor. His bleeding and radiant heart is tattooed on the skins of young people who, even without knowing its meaning and without being faithful Catholics, carry it with pride and as a way of protection. Therefore, it is considered with the status of a graphic banner of popular religiosity. This has been demonstrated by some works by designers, for example Carlos Carrillo."
