When did symbols of the thing e.g this ♡ for the *visual representation that lies beneath these words, overtake the properties and reality of it all?

When did a cute symmetrical squiggle come to stand for a bloody lump of cells that would continue to throb if you ripped it from my chest and put in your own? (Under the right surgical circumstances, natch.)

When did cutsie pie symbolism creep in and take the place of the business of low down dirty and actual life?

And why.
